When Queen Elizabeth II visited Jamaica in 2002, she was petitioned by a small group of Rastafari for slavery reparations. For Rastafari, reparations are linked to moving to Africa, from where their ancestors were brought as enslaved people. This timely, important film traces the Rastafarian petition and a reparations lawsuit against the Queen over a decade into both the British and Jamaican parliaments, while interweaving stories of earlier Rastas who pursued reparations in the 1960s.
Directed by Karen Marks Mafundikwa, 2014, Jamaica, Documentary, 83 min, English.
