BFI partners with to promote Unbound: Visions of the Black feminine

Runs 2nd-15th June “Some films are made because they need to be made. They’re works of passion” Julie Dash. The re-release of  Daughters of the Dust forms part of the Unbound season.

Julie Dash’s Daughters of the Dust: a connection highlighting the profound cultural legacy of images created by and about black women. With roots in theatre and activism – and springing from film movements such as the LA Rebellion and the Sankofa Film Collective in the UK – the works in this season are imbued with mesmerising poetic qualities, experimental techniques and a dedication to reflecting the black feminine in all its multitudes.
