Documentary film about German Town Jamaica screens at DANK Haus
The Lost Story of Seaford Town, Jamaica
German Town is a documentary that explores the history of German heritage and history within Westmoreland Jamaica.  Deep within the isolated, undeveloped mountains of Westmoreland lies a village with a history and people unique to Jamaica. It is said that the inhabitants of this village are descendants of German indentured servants, who were used to work the Jamaican plantations after the emancipation period, to substitute the slave labor that drove the island's economy.
Others think they came under different circumstances such as runaway prisoners, former military battered after the Napoleonic wars, seeking a better life to escape poverty and hardships in their home lands. This documentary project explores the history and contemporary life of Jamaicans of German heritage.

The screening is Friday September 13 2013 2013 at 7:30 pm with filmmaker David Ritter
