Dub Echoes film finished at last

Brazilian filmmaker Bruno Natal has finally completed Dub Echoes which is probably the first film of its kind. There have been many documentaries on the subject of Jamaican music of various periods but I think none that are devoted entirely to Dub. The trailer is stylish and well made and the cast of subjects/interviewees, while understandably incomplete is certainly a good representation of some of the originators of the form, subsequent practitioners and more recent innovators and emulators.

Can't wait to see it.
Here's the website:
One thing though...reggae is dance music, so why did they say this?:
"At first, one might think that reggae and dance music don’t have much to do with each other. But that’s a false perception."
Baffling (and false) statement. I can only imagine they were referring to generic electronic dance music - not music that is intended for dancing to in may be a language thing...
