Referenced in Beyoncé's Lemonade, and newly restored, Julie Dash's acclaimed 1991 feature was the first by an African-American woman to be widely seen. Set on an island off South Carolina, it tells of generations of the Gullah people, descended from slaves, and their migration northward. Poetic in style, and using the Gullah dialect, it evokes a rich yet unknown cultural memory, not unlike the writing of Alice Walker and Toni Morrison.

1991, 112 minutes, Cert. PG

Curated and introduced by Ian Christie, Birkbeck College, University of London
