CaFA Film Nights
March is month in which we're going to do some self-exploration.  It's Roots & Culture Night, where we will view films relating to things near and dear to the hearts of many Caribbean film - our history  and culture.

In our first film, Dreadlocks Story, we take a look at the roots of LOX, one of the more visible symbols of Rastafarian culture.  In the film, Linda Ainouche traces the history of locking hair to ancient Hindus Sadhus. The second film, a short, will explore another Rastafarian ideal, returning to the Motherland.

Dreadlocks Story
by Linda Ainouche
Documentary Feature
Jamaica | 2014

DREADLOCKS STORY is a historical film, which explores the bonds of survival in African and Indian culture in Jamaica in view of up-front anti-slavery and anti-imperialist struggles! Due to British colonists, Indians and African descendants have met in the plantations and created something absolutely unique and indispensable to express what they had been oppressed by.

The film has been shot in 4 countries (India, Jamaica, France and the USA), in 4 languages (Hindi, Jamaican Patois, French and English), with 4 local crews. That has sharpened the director's flexibility!

About Linda Ainouche

linda ainoucheBeing an Anthropologist who loves working with misunderstood communities all over the world, and growing up as a child from two different cultures parents, LINDA A√ŹNOUCHE was born in France, and has ended up in New York City after having stayed in a couple of countries.

Everything comes at just the right moment! She came out with this project to give a new platform to both Rastafari movement and Indian legacy. No doubt, she owns a background which drives her to know the amazing and important results of cultural sources as well as the difficulties to accept and combine them.
