    • Synopsis
    • JOURNEY TO JAH features the two biggest european reggae artists: german reggae musician GENTLEMAN and his italian counterpart ALBOROSIE and rising Jamaican songstress Terry Lynn. The two directors have been following them for over 7 years now. They join the artists on their journey into and around the black dominated culture of rastafari , searching for nothing less than their meaning and fulfillment of their life, and back home to Germany and Italy. This is not a feel good reggae movie but it has a good amount of scintilating performance footage both large scale and intimate.
