Directed by Perry Henzell

Jamaica 2006 90 mins. In English

Perry Henzell’s reggae-laced follow-up to The Harder They Come peels back the tourist’s view of Jamaica in its story of a New York producer whose shampoo-commercial shoot goes awry when the star (PJ Soles) disappears into the island. Thought lost for over thirty years until the rediscovery of the camera negative in the early 2010s, No Place Like Home is a languid trip through the real Jamaica as seen by a white interloper. The film brims with life, saturated with color and music. New restoration!

The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
