Songs of Redemption

Jamaica, Spain | 2013 | documentary | 79 min. Sound of music

The main penitentiary in Kingston, the capital of Jamaica, has implemented a programme of rehabilitation through music. Criminals of various types become artists, performers and producers of reggae, music that soothes the soul, which is of great importance in the environment full of violence. In their songs, prisoners strengthen their sense of identity, express penitence for the crimes committed and, at the same time, warn those who have not broken the law yet.
