A Paradise Stolen

A Paradise Stolen

Monty and Bill Howell recall their enchanted childhood in Pinnacle, a unique Rastarfari oasis. Their father, Leonard Howell, known as “The First Rasta” was the first black man to purchase land under the British in 1939. The film reflects on the value of their father’s teachings and provide a moving testimonial of the love and unity in the community created there.
