A documentary by Noël Dernesch & Moritz Springer
Switzerland/Germany 2013

The documentary film JOURNEY TO JAH is a tale of the seeking and finding of a spiritual home in a foreign culture, one that follows people who are connected by one thing: music. Synopsis The two directors Noël Dernesch and Moritz Springer, as well as cameraman Marcus Winterbauer (Rhythm is it), spent seven years shadowing two unique reggae artists – the German Gentlemen and Italian Alborosie – on their search for authenticity away from western consumerist societies in the land of Rastafari and reggae: Jamaica..

Together with the protagonists we delve into a world where music is used as an outlet to confront poverty, criminality and a lack of prospects, but also one that is characterized by a deep and uplifting spiritual bond. A world about which Alborosie says, «God lives here. But Satan too.» Welcome aboard the JOURNEY TO JAH!
