Big Screen Must See!

Double Feature with LOSING GROUND

(1991) dir Julie Dash w/Cora Lee Day, Alva Rogers, Barbarao, Trula Hoosier, Umar Abdurrahamn [112 min; DCP]
At the dawn of the 20th century, a multi-generational family in the Gullah community on the Sea Islands off the South Carolina coast struggle to maintain their cultural heritage and folklore while contemplating a migration to the mainland, even further from their roots.

“Only five or six minutes into Julie Dash’s visually arresting DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST, it becomes clear that it is like no other film. It is a film that belongs to black women, a film rich with our faces, voices and movement. It is a film full of our colors, dictated by our traditions and ruled by our moods. For these reasons and many more, it is a film that must be seen.” – Patricia Smith, The Boston Globe
