FEATURE PRESENTATION

FEATURE FILMS

Shashamane” by Giulia Amati

Bob Marley’s 1977 hit Exodus tells about the return of Jah people to Africa. This documentary records the unique experience of Caribbean, French, American and British Rastafari who made the journey to Ethiopia and settled in Shashamane. Shot in London, Kingston and Shashamane, this film explores the legacies of colonial slavery and offers an outstanding testimony of the joy and the pain of returning back to Africa. For the first time, the faces, the voices and the challenging environment of the “returnees” are presented to the world.
