German Town: The Lost Story of Seaford Town, Jamaica

May 6, 2018 14:00

Bring your friends and family for an afternoon screening of the “German Town: The Lost Story of Seaford Town, Jamaica” documentary. Come early for lunch at our Lunch at Lenau Park Restaurant!

Free admission, opening presentation, and Q&A session with the director, David Ritter.

“German Town: The Lost Story of Seaford Town, Jamaica” is a documentary that explores the history of German heritage within Westmoreland, Jamaica. Deep within the isolated, undeveloped mountains of Westmoreland lies a village with a history and people unique to Jamaica. It is said that the inhabitants of this village are descendants of German indentured servants, who were used to work the Jamaican plantations after the emancipation period, to substitute the slave labor that drove the islands economy. Others think they came under different circumstances such as runaway prisoners, former military battered after the Napoleonic wars, seeking a better life to escape poverty and hardships in their home lands. This documentary project explores the history and contemporary life of Jamaicans of German heritage.

Directed by DAVID RITTER. Produced by DAVID RITTER & CLINTON WALLACE for PHOTOMUNDO INTERNATIONAL. Music by PROJECT SOUND. Still photographs by ROSWITHA WESIAK. Run time 55 minutes.
