RE-MEMBERING MAROONAGE TRAILER

Re-membering Maroonage Dir: Ashley Alexis McFarlane
Canada/ Jamaica/ West Africa 2012 Length: 43mins

Documentary by Ashley Alexis McFarlane and the Accompong Town Maroons Community

Who is responsible for passing on ancestral memories? Do they exist in our blood?

Re-membering Maroonage is a film about Jamaica’s most conspicuous warriors, the Maroons. The documentary follows the journey of Canadian-born Ashley Alexis McFarlane as she travels to the Jamaican Maroon community of Accompong for the annual January 6th Celebration and learns about the legendary place where her grandfather was born and grew up. Interviews with healers and historians, obeah men, youth, local leaders, and blood relatives narrate this intimate journey about the challenges and necessity of transferring history, memory and family stories across generations as a means of gaining a deeper understanding of oneself.
