The story of the distaff side of the movement.This
touching, moving hour long testament reveals the
Rastawoman's experience as expressed by acclaimed
reggae singer Judy Mowatt, women from Guyana,
Jamaica and Canada.
Beautifully shot on location by the award winning
cinematographer Derek Rogers. Bianca Nyavingi
Brynda written, produced, directed & narrated this
film. The labor of love for Bianca, five years in
the making Roots Daughters has been screened at 7
International Film Festivals around the world. It
was nominated for the Best film Award at the Black
International Film Festival in South Bend Indiana.
It was produced by Fari Int. Productions Inc., in
association with Vision TV.
Roots Daughters introduces Rastawomen in their
social, political and economic context and shows
Nyahbinghi, Rastafari's central ritual of drumming,
chanting and reasoning.It also traces the origins of
Rastafari in Africa, with photographs,
illustrations, maps and charts, including stock
footage of H.I.M Haile Sellasie, the Ethiopian
emperor and spiritual leader of Rastafari, in Geneva
at the League of Nations. In addition, the film
profiles Jamaican freedom fighter Marcus Garvey and
reggae superstar Bob Marley, who helped spread the
Rasta resistance movement around the world.
Judy Mowatt's haunting rendition of Great Black
Warrior Queens, tells of the legendary African
warrior women who held colonial invaders at bay for
years. It depicts women as heroines, strong and
skillful, nurturing and caring.
Rastawomen support such principles as justice,
equality, peace and love.
