UK Film Premier: Rasta - A Soul's Journey


RasTa: A Soul's Journey tells the story of the journey of Rita and Bob Marley's granddaughter's, Donisha Prendergast, to 8 countries - United States, United Kingdom, South Africa, India, Israel, Canada and Jamaica - to explore the roots, evolution and impact of Rastafari.

Donisha acts as the irrepressible and charming guide, educating viewers about a way of life that many know little about beyond the dreadlocks, ganja, and the red, gold, and green. Along the way she encounters Rastafarian elders, musicians, poets, professors and individuals who share personal stories of the influence of Donisha's iconic grandfather, Bob Marley, on their lives.

Moving away from the standing approaches to Rastafari and Jamaica, RasTa: A Soul's Journey focuses on the international presence of Rastafari and the friendly people and places where the uplifting spirit of the movement can be found. In wanting to carry the torch of her famous family, Donisha uses this film to re-affirm the classic statement of her grandfather that indeed 'Rasta is the future'. At it's heart, RasTa: A Soul's Journey, is a film that follows and celebrates a young woman's quest as she comes into her own as a Rasta Empress.

With appearances by Rita Marley, Damien Marley, Dr. Benjamin Zephaniah, Ras Levi Roots, RasTa: A Soul's Journey is a contemporary examination of this fascinating movement.
