Event description

Description

We're excited to screen DREADLOCKS STORY, a documentary by Linda Aïnouche that reveals the hidden spiritual links between Jamaican Rastas and Indian Sadhus.

Indians and African descendants met on the plantations and created something absolutely unique and indispensable to express their oppression. The film explores the bonds of survival of African and Indian culture in Jamaica, in view of up-front anti-slavery and anti-imperialist struggles. This extraordinary film was shot in four countries (India, Jamaica, France and the USA), in four languages (Hindi, Jamaican Patois, French and English), with four local crews.

The director will be joining us for the event and there will be an opportunity to ask questions and talk to her about her work. Read more about the film here: www.dreadlockstory.com
