After nearly a decade exploring different facets of the African diaspora and his own place within it, Ephraim Asili makes his feature-length debut with THE INHERITANCE, an astonishing ensemble work set almost entirely within a West Philadelphia house where a community of young, Black artists and activists forms a collective. A scripted drama of characters attempting to work towards political consensus — based partly on Asili's own experiences in a Black liberationist group — weaves with a documentary recollection of the Philadelphia liberation group MOVE, the victim of a notorious police bombing in 1985. Ceaselessly finding commonalties between politics, humor and philosophy, with Black authors and radicals at its edges, THE INHERITANCE is a remarkable film about the world as we know it. Official Selection, 2020 Toronto and New York film festivals; 2021 Berlin International Film Festival.
