ARRAY @ THE BROAD PRESENTS: 'DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST'

Recognized as the first feature film by an African-American women with a wide theatrical release in the United States, Julie Dash's DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST follows a multi-generational family on the Sea Islands off of South Carolina. These 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. This cult classic filled with lush imagery and poetic dialogue will serve as entry into candid dialogue about cultural identity on and off screen. A conversation with filmmakers Julie Dash and Ava DuVernay to follow immediately after the screening.
