Directed by Alan Greenberg

With Gregory Isaacs, Bob Marley, Mutabaruka, Louis Lepke

"Striking... beautiful... near-perfect."
—Jim Jarmusch

Proclaimed by Jim Jarmusch to be one of his favorite films, this exquisite, profound meditation on Jamaica—from its Rasta tenets to its still-endemic colonialist tendencies and history of tragic political violence—is a chilling and heartbreaking small masterpiece. Greenberg (who worked with Werner Herzog on Heart of Glass) brought Herzog’s longtime cinematographer Jorg Schmidt-Reitwein to the island with him to document a country in flux after the death of Bob Marley, capturing awe-inspiring shots of the funeral procession. The result is one of the most beautiful and poetic odes to the country ever committed to celluloid, as well as an indictment of a police state rife with violence and poverty.
