Daughters of the Dust (DVD + Blu-ray) A Film by Julie Dash Starring: Alva Rogers, Bahni Turpin, Barbara-O, Cheryl Lynn Bruce, Cora Lee Day, Tony King and Trula Hoosier At the dawn of the 20th century, a multi-generational family in the Gullah community on the Sea Islands off of South Carolina - 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 the roots. This is a new 25th anniversary restoration of director Julie Dash's landmark film. The first wide release by a black female filmmaker, Daughters of the Dust was met with wild critical acclaim and rapturous audience response when it initially opened in 1991. Casting a long legacy, Daughters of the Dust still resonates today, most recently as a major influence on Beyonce's video Album Lemonade. Restored (in conjunction with UCLA) for the first time, complete with the correct colour grading overseen by cinematographer Arthur Jafa, audiences will finally see the film exactly as Julie Dash intended. Special features Fully illustrated booklet with new writing on the film and full credits Other extras TBC
