This Saturday (at 17:30), we host the world premiere of the documentary Wake up! What would you do to change the world?, produced by The White Lion Films. Shot entirely in the 2011 edition of Rototom Sunsplash, the documentary returns after six years on the stage where it was set. This way it can be screened worldwide via streaming on one of the six channels we set up on DailyMotion. In addition and thanks to the support of the Foundation ONCE, the screening presented by the festival’s Reggae University will be adapted for people with hearing and sight impediments, in Spanish and English.
Directed by Ángel Loza, winner of a Goya in 2009 for the Best Short Documentary with ‘Héroes, no hacen falta alas para volar’, this documentary presents the answers to the question “What would you do to change the world?” provided by the audience, guests and artists from different countries, cultures and beliefs that supported Rototom Sunplash 2011. Among the voices that unite the tape are those of the legend of reggae Bob Marley’s widow, Rita Marley, and three of his sons: Ziggy, Stephen and Ky-Mani Marley, together with the guests of the Social Forum such as the Nobel Peace Laureates Shirin Ebadi and Vandana Shiva.
The film will also be shown on Facebook Live via the official page of Rototom Susplash and in HD quality on the web platform of the festival.
