The Legacy of DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST | Spotlight on Black Cinema | Feminist Frequency Radio 154

Today on the podcast, we’re discussing Julie Dash’s lush and lyrical 1991 film DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST. Focusing on a multi-generational group of Gullah women on the eve of a life-altering move, this sweeping work was the first film directed by a Black woman to get a general theatrical release in the United States. 30 years later, the haunting and expressive film retains its striking impact.
