DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST
Friday, January 31
*8:00 show introduced by Alva Rogers
(1991, Julie Dash) “Set in 1901 on the South Carolina island of St. Helena, where descendants of slaves have lived away from the burgeoning 20th century of the US and kept African culture alive. Nana Peazant (Cora Lee Day) is the village’s proud matriarch and embodies an ageless spiritual connection with the past. Christianity is part of this future, the cause of tension with the islanders’ religious practices.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian. With Alva Rogers, Barbara-O. DCP. Approx. 112 min.
