A “mind-blowing” (The Village Voice) documentary that maps the intersection between reggae and Judaism.
Featuring well-known American reggae and hip hop artist Matisyahu, Brooklyn dub legend Dr Israel, and NJ-based ska musician King Django, Awake Zion is a surprising and controversial music documentary that is a celebration of roots and culture. Successfully funded through Kickstarter, the world’s largest crowd-funding platform, first-time Columbian director Monica Haim travelled from Crown Heights and Brooklyn — where Caribbean and Jewish cultures share a history of adversity — to Jamaica, the birthplace of reggae — and ultimately to Israel, where a sizzling reggae scene thrives today.
Screening with: Auschwitz On My Mind
