Description:A Rastafarian community in southern New Zealand attempts to live in autarchy according to the tenets of their movement. Bob Marley, a prophet of our electronic age, is the soundtrack to the everyday lives of these Maoris who feel closer to their own roots by observing the Rasta faith. Merata Mita's camera respectfully portrays this singular cultural dialogue. The outsider cultures of Jamaicans, Ethiopians and Maoris have come together, vibrating to a common cosmic chord. They find an underground brotherhood, across continents and seas.
