Pop This!

Jun 17, 2020

This week we watch the poetic masterpiece Daughters of the Dust, a 1991 film written, directed and produced by Julie Dash, which tells the story of three generations of Gullah women living in a village on Saint Helena Island in South Carolina.

Daughters of the Dust was named one of the most significant films of the last 30 years by Indiewire, it was the inspiration for Beyonce’s Lemonade, the first feature film directed by an African-American woman distributed in the U.S. It is a classic film by a brilliant talent that has long gone underappreciated.
