DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST 35mm
March 27 @ 18:15 - 20:30
DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST 35mm screens at The Prince Charles Cinema (27 MAR 18:15):
At the dawn of the 20th century, a family in the Gullah community of coastal South Carolina – former West African slaves who adopted many of their ancestors’ Yoruba traditions – suffers a generational split. Young Haagar (Kaycee Moore) wants to move to the mainland away from tradition-bound matriarch Nana (Cora Lee Day). Former prostitute Yellow Mary (Barbara-O) gets a cold shoulder when she returns to the island with her female lover, especially from her sister Viola (Cheryl Lynn Bruce).
“Daughters of the Dust is [Julie Dash’s] rhapsodic 1991 debut feature, and it exhibits a unique cinematic voice from the get go.” lwlies.com
