    Introduction by Ringo Ringvee.

    Filmed in Jamaica, Roaring Lion charts the growth and development of the Rastafarian Movement and its founder, the former Garveyite Leonard Howell.  With interviews from the renowned academic and Rasta scholar Professor Barry Chevannes and several of the movement’s leading figures, Mortimmo Plano, Fimore Alvaranga, Dago and Gertrude Campbell, the documentary charts the Movement’s growth from a persecuted commune in the foothills of Pinnacle, Jamaica, to an internationally recognized religion.
