“Julie Dash’s DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST was given a full restoration last year to celebrate its 25th anniversary. At the dawn of the 20th century, a multi-generational black family on the Sea Islands off of South Carolina struggles to maintain their cultural heritage and folklore while contemplating a migration to the mainland. This lyrical story of family and history was the first full-length film directed by an African-American woman to obtain wide theatrical release in the United States.”
Free for members. Skype introduction by director Julie Dash and in-person by Taneshia Nash Laird, Executive Director of the Arts Council of Princeton.
