One People.This is one of the coolest project I ever came across.One People is a collaborative documentary that invites people worldwide to contribute footage to celebrate Jamaica’s global reach 50 years after independence.
With one year to go before Jamaica celebrates its 50th year as a sovereign nation, this documentary will certainly mark the occasion. One People: Out of Many, One Documentary is the full title of the project undertaken by 1962 Productions.
The crew behind the project asks a very simple question”What does Jamaica mean to you?“with the aim that a global community of creative minded people will respond by uploading a visual representation of their answer. The collective behind the project know the tiny island nation has touched many outside of their country, even beyond their diaspora, and this project will embrace anyone who has ever been moved by a reggae song, enjoyed a plate of ackee and saltfish, a Negril sunset, been inspired by the words of Marcus Garvey or simply has a point of view.
One People will premiere in London, Toronto, New York, Miami and Kingston on August 6th 2012.You, me everybody’s piece can be featured in the One People Documentary. How cool is that?
