    EXCLUSIVE! This film is the bomb!

    An amazing new documentary tracing the history of the first Rasta (Leonard Howell) and the setting up of the Pinnacle rastafarian encampment (some of the remaining last survivors are interviewed). Filmed in Jamaica with music and interviews with Bunny Lee, Max Romeo, The Abyssinians, Count Ossie's Drummers, Bongo Herman and more - this is a seriously excellent documentary. Looks good, the music is awesome - roots rastafari music in natural settings, the research and integrity of the film fabulous.

    The film is directed by Helen Lee and based on her earlier book of the same name.
