RASTAS' JOURNEY 'HOME'
WORLD PREMIERE
Director: Maria Stratford
Indonesia, Australia, 40 min

Reggae music often refers to the greatness of Africa and the desire of members of the Rastafari movement to return to the land of their ancestors. But how many Rastas make the journey 'home' and how successful is the act of repatriation? Rastas' Journey 'Home' is a documentary that explores the process of returning to one's roots and through interviews with members of the Rasta community reveals the conflicted emotions that they experience in their new homeland of Ethiopia. The documentary also highlights reggae music that features the discourse of Africa, Zion and being African.

The film looks at the reality of 'repatriation' to Africa for members of the Rastafari movement who are descendants of the Trans-Atlantic slave trade.
