About the Film (from Khalik Allah):
“I’m depicting the undepicted. I’m taking what I did in Field Niggas, and multiplying that times ten. My artistic vision is to weave a wild tapestry of intimate words, sounds, and obscure portraiture into a cohesive energy that will penetrate the heart. During “triangular-trade” only the “wildest” Africans were thrown off onto Jamaica because their captors feared they would be the most rebellious and unbreakable slaves. This is part of the reason why Jamaica is so strong and so wild, and why such a tiny island has had such a huge impact on the world. This isn’t going to be a music documentary, a “talking-head” documentary, or a religious documentary. In the end it will be a spiritual diamond crystal of a film. I’m using film as a prism to depict the island’s inner light through.”
Door open @ 7:00PM Reception – meet & greet the Comedians, alongside Caribbean art with renown Caribbean artist Adrian Gomez Artista;
and Caribbean Children books with Former Golden State Warrior, Adonal Foyle;
