Performing Diaspora 2014 Film Screening & Discussion
Feb 12, 2014, 4:30pm-9:30pm
The sixth annual Performing Diaspora series will take the format of a film screening and discussion, featuring Bob Marley: The Making of a Legend. The award-winning film by Esther Anderson and Gian Godoy was based on footage shot in the early seventies examining aspects of the life, creativity, beliefs and influences of young Marley and the Wailers, when the idea of a Jamaican supergroup akin to the Beatles or the Rolling Stones was just a dream. We will look at the rise of reggae music and rastafarian consciousness, in addition to exploring the various influential developments in Jamaica and the diaspora since the 1970s.
