Storyline

Gasolina - The Reggaeton Explosion explores the overwhelming fascination with the driving beat of this upstart genre (the bastard child of Jamaican Dancehall reggae and Afro-Caribbean salsa, with a dash of Hip-Hop's materialism and macho swagger thrown in), this film explores the controversy surrounding the over-the-top live performances, highly-sexual lyrics and dance moves, as well as the lives of top Reggaeton stars themselves. Through interviews with recording artists, their managers, record label execs, music journalists, top radio DJ's, club owners and young Latino fans themselves. Written by jacqui knapp
