Description

Jamaica, 1978, disenchantment has spawned gang warfare in the cities, violence begets violence. The Number of murders climbs into the hundreds and yet prime misister Michael Manley and opposition leader Edward Seaga refuse to meet. Bob Marley himself a victim of this outbreak of violence, organises on behalf of the Jamaican People, the giant "One Love Peace Concert". Held in Kingston on the 22nd April 1978 the concert coincided with the twelfth anniversary of Halle Sellassie's visit to Jamaica. The film of this remarkable event includes performances from Peter Tosh, Jacob Miller, Dennis Brown, U-Roy, and of course Bob Marley himself. It climaxes with the historic moment when Marley united Jamaica's staunchest political foes for the very first time. Micheal Manley and Edward Seaga would not appear together untill May 1981 at the state funeral of the very man who had so publicly attempted to heal their rift. Over 50 mins of exclusive interviews shot in Jamaica especially for this DVD! Features: Interviews
