25th Anniversary Restoration

Daughters of the Dust
Opening in NYC on Friday, November 18
209 West Houston St, New York, NY 10014
Special guests and filmmaker Q&As TBA

At the dawn of the 20th century, a multi-generational family in the Gullah community on the Sea Islands off of South Carolina - former West African slaves who adopted many of their ancestors' Yoruba traditions - struggle to maintain their cultural heritage and folklore while contemplating a migration to the mainland, even further from their roots. The first wide release by a black female filmmaker, "Daughters of the Dust" was met with wild critical acclaim and rapturous audience response when it initially opened in 1991. Casting a long legacy, "Daughters of the Dust" still resonates today, most recently as a major in influence on Beyonce's video album "Lemonade." Restored for the first time with proper color grading overseen by cinematographer AJ Jafa, audiences will finally see the film exactly as Julie Dash intended.

"A film of spellbinding visual beauty."
- The New York Times

"One of the most distinctive, original independent films of the time...
Every image, every moment is a full creation. Dash is one of the heroines of the modern cinema."

- The New Yorker

We have five free passes to this film good for the two week run 
which we will send to the first 5 people who email us 
a request for them with their snail mail address.
