This is a must see dvd , it give the HISTORY of JAMAICA MUSIC, CULTURE and livity of not only the RASTAFARIAN, but the entire culture from Jamaica Independence to present time This is one of the best documentaries. The back story that I heard from friends about this film–and I’ll admit I don’t know The film became a meditation on the life of the Jamaican sufferer and, indirectly, an homage to the life of Bob Marley. This film does have a lot of very poor, very honest and well-spoken Jamaican people talking about their philosophies of life, their religion, and their hardships. This film contains some great cinematography of both the Jamaican countryside and Kingston. But what really makes it unique is the filmmakers willingness to put a microphone in front of a lot of people that aren’t usually heard and just let the cameras roll. IT IS A MUST GET DVD
What began as a documentary of the funeral of Bob Marley was transformed into a spiritual poem on the strange and beautiful lives of the Jamaican people — a life of poverty and oppression in a land of paradise. LAND OF LOOK BEHIND cultivates a similar poetic atmosphere, and becomes a beautiful look at a nation and its music.
