Join us for this month’s NYWIFT Screening Series feature: Dreadlocks Story directed by member Linda Aïnouche, who will be available for a Q&A immediately following the film.


Dreadlocks Story examines the bonds of survival of African and Indian culture in Jamaica in view of up-front anti-slavery and anti-imperialist struggles. Indian and African descendants have met in the plantations and created something absolutely unique and indispensable as a form of self-expression in the face of British colonialism.

 

Linda Aïnouche, Ph.D, was first an Ethnographic Researcher and Cultural Analyst and specialized in ethnic minorities, misunderstood communities and religion before becoming a documentary filmmaker. Aïnouche’s Hindu and Rastafari expertise gives Dreadlocks Story a unique style that addresses the cultural influences of India on the Rasta lifestyle and covers persecution and misperceptions of the Rastafari movement. Her wide range of fieldwork allows her to work with local people and see a hidden perspective rarely touched on.
