Exodus : Movement of Jah People
Add to selectionDownload PDF
 

Exodus was a unique urban phenomenon which did not simply confront but intelligently challenged society's assumptions and values. They offered working, viable solutions to many of society's ills : poverty, crime, drugs, homelessness, unemployment and the breakdown of community. Exodus was a volatile mixture of rastafarianism, new-age punk and street-smart politics. "We are not drop outs but force outs".

Further information

"This remarkable film is an antidote to the dereliction and paranoia on Britain's streets. Squatting and renovating decayed buildings, Exodus pursue a mutually agreed quest to regenerate their disaffected community. Their regular raves bring ex-army, ex-estate agents, ex-shop assistants and ex-criminals together as Exodus, a dance with new direction. For anyone interested in a street relevant discussion on drugs, criminality, spirituality and community, this film is a must see."
