ABOUT THE FILM

A multigenerational family of former West African slaves living off the coast of South Carolina struggle to maintain their cultural heritage and folklore while contemplating a migration to the mainland, even further from their roots. This landmark film was the first wide release by a black female filmmaker, and has been named to the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry. “In the hands of director Julie Dash and photographer Arthur Jafa, this nonlinear film becomes visual poetry, a wedding of imagery and rhythm that connects oral tradition with the music video. It is an astonishing, vivid portrait not only of a time and place but of an era’s spirit.” – Rita Kempley, The Washington Post.
