SONGS OF REDEMPTION
Dir. Amanda Sans
Feature Documentary (Jamaica)
Watch Trailer: http://bit.ly/1qbBzBw
Jamaica is not generally known for a progressive penal system, but at Kingston’s notorious General Penitentiary inmates have access to musical training, a radio station, and recording facilities as part of a program officials credit with significantly reducing once-rampant violence within the imposing brick walls. Songs of Redemption goes inside “GP” to show how the ability to make music behind bars affects prisoners’ lives in providing not just a desperately needed creative outlet, but also a means to confront their violent pasts and to send a ska-, dub-, and reggae-inflected message of peace to the outside world.
