Summary Made in Jamaica: A musical documentary that presents an overview of the reggae music movement past and present, from the crime and violence of the ghetto to political responsibility, showcasing performances and interviews with such artists as Capleton, Elephant Man, Bunny Wailer, Toots & the Maytals, Bounty Killer, Gregory Isaacs, Tanya Stephens, Beres Hammond, Third World, Lady Saw, Sly Dunbar & Robbie Shakespeare, Joseph Current, Vybz Kartel, Shiah Coore, Koolant, Alaine, Doc Marshall, Brick & Lace, Blessed and Bogle.
Journey of the lion: Brother Howie (Howard A. Trott), is a Jamaican Rastafari who feels disconnected from his ancestral birthplace of Africa. Following his need to find connection with his roots, Brother Howie returns to his homeland, travelling first through England, then to the Northern coast of Africa, and eventually to Ghana, making observations and unexpected discoveries along the way. As a follow-up to the director's earlier 1983 film, "So frei wie der Löwe [As free as the lion]", this docudrama represents an ongoing effort by the director to present questions of place and identity via the lives and beliefs of a Jamaican family.
