RasTa at the ROM is an innovative and exciting initiative built around the hi-def feature-length documentary, RasTa: A Soul’s Journey. The film tells the story of the epic journey of Rita and Bob Marley’s granddaughter, Donisha Prendergast, as she travels to eight (8) countries around the world to explore the roots and evolution of the Rastafarian movement and the many cultures that it has influenced. The film follows her travels to Ethiopia, England, Israel, South Africa, Canada, United States, India and Jamaica, while documenting Prendergast’s personal transformation and understanding. The film features interviews with Rita Marley, Damian Marley, UK entrepreneur Ras Levi Roots and poet, Benjamin Zephaniah, to name a few. RasTa: A Soul’s Journey is produced by Patricia Scarlett, Marilyn Gray and award-winning filmmaker Stuart Samuels, who is also the film’s Director.
