CATCH A FIRE AND THE FIRST RASTA
SUNDAY, JULY 28 @ 5PM

CATCH A FIRE/THE FIRST RASTA

CATCH A FIRE
Catch a Fire tells the story of Deacon Paul Bogle, often described as a 19th century Malcom X. 30 years after the end of slavery in Jamaica, the Morant Bay Rebellion of 1865 provoked outrage in Victorian Britain shaping race and land attitudes. The story is constructed using extensive interviews with Paul Bogle's grandson as well as archive material.
Directed by Menelik Shabaz, 1995, 30 min, Jamaica and UK, Docu-drama, English

THE FIRST RASTA
Thirty years after Bob Marley's death, it is time to pay tribute to Leonard Percival Howell, The First Rasta.  At the beginning of the last century, the young Leonard Percival Howell (1893- 1981) left Jamaica, became a sailor and traveled the world. On his way, he chanced upon all the ideas that stirred his time. From Bolshevism to New Thought, from Gandhi to Anarchism, from Garveyism to psychoanalysis, he sought to find his promised land. With this cocktail of ideas Leonard "Going" Howell returned to Jamaica and founded Pinnacle, the first Rasta community.
Directed by Helene Lee, 2010, 85 min, France/Jamaica, Documentary, English
