6369_237335370345_237262730345_7723228_2024383_nFrom film’s Facebook page: Awake Zion is a documentary that reveals the unsuspecting links between Rasta, Reggae and Judaism, through a musical and spiritual sojourn exploring the meaning of identity.

Through one woman’s musical odyssey exploring the meaning of identity, Awake Zion is a documentary that explores the mysterious connections between Rasta, Reggae and Judaism. All the way back to the alleged sultry affair between King Solomon and the Queen of Sheba, a certain blend of Jewish flavor has crept into the spiritual history of Ethiopia, turning up subtly in Rastafarian lifestyle, and then inevitably in reggae.

Everyone, with his/her own worldview, is forever chasing some kind of Zion—be it geographic, material or spiritual. Awake Zion reminds you that, despite the struggle to get there, you are somehow always home.
