Nowness “Jab Jab” / Dir. Reuben Millns & Tom Harrod

In Jab Jab for Nowness Reuben Millns and Tom Harrad, explore Grenada’s annual J’ouvert festival. Every year, thousands of Grenadians congregate in the middle of the night to ‘play Jab,’ covered head-to-toe in motor oil as a symbol of remembrance and defiance.

The directors worked with carnival organisers and locals to gain an understanding into the importance of Jab Jab, and its cultural and historical significance.
