HAUNTED JAMAICA marks Michael's latest completed feature documentary. HAUNTED is surprisingly candid walk down the road of metaphysics and the paranormal on the island of Jamaica (Voodoo, Obeah, Ghosts).
What was to be a simple Q and A with local Jamaicans 'why is the island so notoriously haunted?' turns into a surprising revelation of the true pain handed down from the country's slave history. An eye opening look at the truth behind the metaphysics...or is that the metaphysics behind the truth?
