Open screening of DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST

As part of Black History Month 2023, the B-Film research centre and the Department of Film and Creative Writing invite you to a screening of Daughters of the Dust, a 1991 film written, directed and produced by Julie Dash and the first feature film directed by an African-American woman to be distributed theatrically in the United States. 

Set in 1902, Daughters of the Dust tells the story of three generations of women on Saint Helena Island as they prepare to migrate off the island, out of the Southern United States, and into the North.

This is an open screening with no booking required.
