“You don’t interfere with nature!”, says a Rastafarian about his dreadlocks. He is not the only interviewee who is a fan of a spiritual life close to nature. In this documentary, various Jamaican Rastafarians and their female counterparts, musicians and cultural historians explain the meaning of ‘the locks’, the history of Rastafari that developed in Jamaica and is now a global phenomenon. And about British colonial Jamaica, slavery, the dispossessed population, the arrival of Indian laborers and the Black Power movement’s influence. A unique film about self-expression, music, prejudices and spirituality, filmed in a variety of countries from France and India to Jamaica and America. Never before was this specific history covered in such depth on film using interviews and unique archival material, and especially not from a female perspective on this generally male-dominated culture.
