The first feature film by an African-American woman to be shown in theaters around the nation, 1991’s indie flick Daughters of the Dust has captivated international audiences. The movie tells the tale of three generations of women whose families were brought to South Carolina and Georgia centuries prior to the film’s story. It’s a story that isn’t often told — the story of women dealing with the “multiplicity of identity.” The film is important for people to see, and the audience will certainly not regret it. Plus, on Nov. 27, here will be a discussion with the Detroit Film Theatre, the DIA, and Black Artists Meet Up that is free and open to the public.
