"Filmed in Jamaica in May and June of 1981,
Greenberg's initial intention, to my knowledge,
was purely to capture Bob Marley's funeral, a
nd the impact of his death on the island's culture. But somehow,
like an unusual tropical blossom, the film unfolds into something
more striking and beautiful than maybe even Greenberg himself expected.
It becomes an organic portrait of the very soul of Jamaica, and the earthy persuasive
substrata of Rastafarianism." -- Jim Jarmusch, upon selecting the film for screening
at the 2001 Vancouver International Film Festival.
