Double Feature with LOSING GROUND

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. DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST (1991) dir Julie Dash w/Cora Lee Day, Alva Rogers, Barbarao, Trula Hoosier, Umar Abdurrahamn [112 min; DCP]

“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
