Julie Dash's 'Daughters of the Dust' is one of the most influential yet underrated feminist films of all time. One doesn't have to look farther than Beyonce's recent visual album 'Lemonade' to see the impact the film has had.
Not only was Julie Dash's one of the only working black female directors in the 90's, she became the first African American woman to have a movie in general theatrical release after this film had a small bout of success in New York shortly after its premiere at Sundance.
This screening will be accompanied by discussion afterwards and FREE FOOD. Brings your friends!
