One of the songs I remember from filming Sunsplash in Jamaica is Jimmy Cliff's "By the Rivers of Babylon." You can see how I as a Jew—painfully aware of the brutality of the galut, the exile/diaspora—could relate to longings of these people that were captured in their homes and carried off to become slaves in a strange land.
