Directed by David Baugnon Documentary / Short • 11 minutes • USA
Matisyahu (which is the name Matthew in Hebrew) is a Hasidic Reggae/Beat Box/Rapper. This documentary follows Matisyahu as he performs in New York City and explains his conversion to Hasidism and his mission to ignite spirituality in others with his music.
This was one of the first films sent to us by Big Daddy Productions in the early days of choosing films for the festival. Since that time Matisyahu has developed a following all across the United States. He projects joy and faith which is why people love his music.
This short is eleven minutes long and shows with an exceptional blues documentary called Timbuktoubab.
