MJFF - Awake Zion

Director: Monica Haim / Featuring: Sister Carol, Super Dane, Bongo Daniel, Matisyahu
2013 USA / English / 65 minutes

An exploration of the connections between Rasta, Reggae, and Judaism, through one woman's beat-laden adventure into the meaning of identity. Jewish influence turns up subtly in Rastafarian lifestyle and inevitably, in reggae. The film travels from Crown Heights, Brooklyn, where Caribbean and Jewish cultures share a history of adversity - to Jamaica, the birthplace of reggae - and ultimately to Israel, where a sizzling reggae scene thrives today. The film's "jammin' spirit of oneness" is a deeply personal examination of what it means to be Jewish, what it means to be Rasta, and, most importantly, what it means to be "home."
