Daughters of the Dust: Film Screening at Libreria Ghana

Join us for a screening of Julie Dash's groundbreaking film, Daughters of the Dust, which changed the game for Black female filmmakers and broke all the rules of cinematic storytelling:
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 wants to move to the mainland away from tradition-bound matriarch Nana (Cora Lee Day). Former prostitute Yellow Mary gets a cold shoulder when she returns to the island with her female lover, especially from her sister Viola.
Daughters of the Dust, written, directed and produced by Julie Dash with cinematography by acclaimed video artist, Arthur Jafa, was the first feature film directed by an African-American woman to be distributed theatrically in the United States when it was released in 1991.
The film was also the inspiration behind Beyonce's stunning visual album, Lemonade.
Limited seating. Only RSVP if you intend to come.
Daughters of the Dust is being screened as part of Libreria Ghana's Year of Return Screening and Salon Series.
