New Rasta I-Story Documentary 'Coral Gardens Incident'
« on: August 03, 2008, 07:01:18 PM »

Just to let you guys know about this great new documentary:

"The Coral Gardens Incident - Blowing The Lid"
This is a new documentary straight from JA about the infamous incident back in holy week of 1963, some of you will know of the event and would have heard it mentioned in many Rasta songs but probably won't know what it was all about, this film sheds light on exactly what happened by examining old newspaper articles and headlines from the time.
 
The first 28mins of the film looks at how the press portrayed the event and focuses on how Rasta's where viewed back then, some of the names used to refer to Rasta's back in them days where "Bungoes" or "Beards"!
The film gives information that you aren't likely to find in any other film.
 
The second half of the film (1hr5mins) features Mystic Revelation Of Rastafari filmed at the annual rasta Groundation event which remembers Coral Gardens each year, the band members give a first hand account of what happened and also talk about Rastafari.
 
For anyone interested in Jamaican and Rasta history then this documentary is priceless, this is the first time the event has been discussed on film.
