The forceful feature-length documentary Journey to Jah by Noel Dernesch and Moritz Springer catches the global phenomenon of crossing borders by documenting the experiences of integration in a foreign culture. The film follows the internationally acclaimed European musicians Gentleman and Alborosie, which found a new spiritual home within the reggae culture while Jamaican singer Terry Lynn takes the other direction integrating European styles into her music.Written by
A story about the meaning of Rastafari, about the emancipation of the mind while the body is kept in chains. This is clearly not for all viewers, but if you find fascination in the Jamaican culture, in the idea of a free spirit you will enjoy it. The patois spoken is completely at ease, it is beautiful to listen to the conversation between Gentleman and Alborosie and to find the deep meaning hidden in every phrase. The cinematography portraying the messy ghettos and the sunny beaches is very well put together by the makers of this film who, I think, totally understood the Jamaican spirit and showed us an opposite world from the Babylon we live in.
