ARRAY @ The Broad: Daughters of the Dust
Recognized as the first feature film by an African-American woman with a wide theatrical release in the United States, Julie Dash's Daughters Of The Dust follows a multi-generational family on the Sea Islands off of South Carolina. These 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 their roots. This cult classic filled with lush imagery and poetic dialogue will serve as entry into candid discussion about cultural identity on and off screen. (Still from Daughters of the Dust, 1991. 113min., dir. Julie Dash. Image courtesy of Cohen Media Group.)

A conversation with Daughters of the Dust director Julie Dash and Ava DuVernay will follow the screening.

Tickets to this program include general admission access to The Broad from November 14-21, 2017. Skip the standby line and present your ticket at the main entrance during regular museum hours. Access does not include The Broad’s Special Exhibition, Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors.

About ARRAY @ The Broad
ARRAY @ The Broad is an ongoing series featuring classic and contemporary films curated with an eye toward the intersection of art, history and cultural identity. With the cinematic image as the centerpiece, the series engages audiences through post-screening conversations with a spectrum of artists and scholars for an immersive exchange of ideas and insights beyond the screen that enliven many issues addressed by artists in the Broad collection. ARRAY, founded in 2010 by filmmaker Ava DuVernay, is an arts collective dedicated to the amplification of films by people of color and women filmmakers.
