RasTa: A Soul's Journey

Directed by Stuart Samuels, the feature length documentary RasTa: A Soul's Journey follows Donisha Prendergast, the lovely 25-year old granddaughter of the late reggae icon Bob Marley and his wife Rita Marley, as she meets men and women in different parts of the world who have adopted a Rastafari lifestyle. In the documentary, Predregast explores how the movement evolved in those places and ultimately hopes to find her purpose in life as she honors her grandparents' legacy.

The documentary, produced by Patricia Scarlett and Marilyn Gray, features interviews with Bob Marley's youngest son Damian Marley, wife Rita Marley, British/Jamaican writer and poet Benjamin Zephaniah, reggae artist and entrepreneur Ras Levi-Roots, and Dr Jake Homiak, curator of the exhibit Discovering Rastafari at the National Museum of Natural History. The documentary examines the ways that Rastafari has evolved and manifested itself globally beyond the island of Jamaica, and attempts to dispel any negative misconceptions about Rastafarians.

Here's full synopsis:

A Soul's Journey tells the story of the journey of Rita and Bob Marley's granddaughter, Donisha Prendergast, to eight (8) countries around the world to explore the roots and evolution of Rastafari. Her journey takes her to places where her grandfather's captivating performances and his message are still fondly remembered. The documentary boasts an uplifting and inspiring reggae soundtrack that features established as well as emerging contemporary, reggae stars such as Humble, Matisyahu and Damian Marley. This exciting mix of travel, music and culture packs a powerful punch that will appeal to audiences around the world.

RasTa made its world premiere at the Festival du Nouveau Cinéma in Montreal back in October 18th & 20th, and it last screened at the Whistler Film Festival last weekend, where it was the runner-up for the audience award.
