  Daughters of the Dust on Blu-ray and DVD [read more]
  Sensible in love
  The first widely released film by an African American female director, Daughters of the Dust was met with wild critical acclaim and rapturous audience response when it opened in 1991. The film and its legacy still resonates, most recently as a major influence in Beyoncé's video album Lemonade.

This new restoration of Julie Dash's landmark film, by Cohen Media Group in conjunction with UCLA, and overseen by cinematographer Arthur Jafa, means audiences will finally see the film exactly as the director intended.

In South Carolina's Sea Islands at the dawn of the 20th century, a multi-generational family of the Gullah community - 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 and even further from their roots. The trailer is at the link above.

In cinemas today and Dual Format Edition (DVD/Blu-ray) release on 26 June 2017.
