Atleast me can say me ketch the likkle last tail ender years of it, being born in 1994 but jahkno if me cudda just get one wish from God, it would be to go back and re-live my life in those years, such peace, everybody seems healthy and happy. I'm pretty sure that decency, love and respect was at an all time high, and I doubt people cared too much about being rich and living in all the vanity that the youths a chase today. anyone who was a young child or teenager or adult during those years in Jamaica is abundantly blessed by God and I would switch places with you anyday

i was 7 then. most of us never had much but you would never know. we made our own toys, gig, skate trucks from milk boxes. we played marbles, hop scotch and dandy shandy with the girls and yes! dolly house. there was a lot of neighbourly love and if you are in kingston and a person dies in mobay a kind of gloom comes over the country. but the fight for power which created this gun colture with some negative imput from outside forces effectively fucked all that and it's gettin worse

I was eight yrs old then.  we (my six brothers & sisters) used to take country bus early Saturday morning from Santa Cruz.to reach parade then run over to Carib to watch the matinee.  Afterwards we'd walk over to tastee for pattie and custard,  Onward to Hope gardens and coconut park. From there we'd take the constant spring bus toward Coconut grove and banana way in Red Hills spend the night go ah church Sunday  then be driven back to country by our rich relatives, LOL, and tun on Kerosene lamp and watch T.V in the one room which had electricity.  The rest of the house kerosene. Imagine the oldest child was fifteen and no one feared for our safety. Jamaica is much more developed now but what I do miss is the love and trust we had for each other. in spite of our problems, No place betta den yaard. I've never seen a country (I've traveled to many and lived in a few) and nowhere have I seen so many different races mixing and living together and sharing the same culture and proud to be called the same. Out of many ONE, JAMAICAN

this film was made by the U.S government because 1972 was a election year in jamaica, and as jamaica is on the doorstep of the U.S, the need was felt to catch the prevailing situation of ordinary life for the average folks of jamaica on film. there is a longer version to this film that has a interview with the leader of the PNP michael manley talking about socialism, something the U.S was concerned about. so this film was made with a political backdrop to it. hope that was helpful to you.
