The forceful feature-length documentary Journey to Jah by Noel Dernesch and Moritz Springer catches the global phenomenon of crossing borders by documenting the experiences of integration in a foreign culture. The film follows the internationally acclaimed European musicians Gentleman and Alborosie, which found a new spiritual home within the reggae culture while Jamaican singer Terry Lynn takes the other direction integrating European styles into her music.
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. The directors spent seven years shadowing two unique reggae artists - Gentleman and Alborosie - on their search for authenticity away from their societies in the land of Rastafari and reggae: Jamaica.
