Daughters of the Dust will be preceded by short film Maman(s).

Cited by Beyoncé as an inspiration for her visual album Lemonade, Julie Dash’s 1991 film is a cutting-edge and groundbreaking piece of work. Set on an island off South Carolina at the turn of the 21st century, it focuses on a family from the Gullah community who live in the tradition of their West-African ancestors. But younger generations yearn to move to the mainland in a tale that is an ode to a way of life.


Part of the Black Women's Retrospective which includes Belle and Welcome II the Terrordome.
