Black Mother (Khalik Allah, 2018)

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


The visionary Black Mother takes audiences on a spiritual and hypnotic journey through Jamaican landscapes while presenting memorable portraits of the country’s inhabitants. Sharing their testimonies on the grind of survival as well as their hopes for the future, the film presents the dichotomies of rebellion and reverence that have shaped Jamaica’s turbulent history through a deeply personal lens. On the strength of Black Mother, his previous feature Field Niggas, and his work as a cinematographer on Beyoncé’s Lemonade, Khalik Allah has emerged as one of today’s great stylists in documentary cinema. (77 mins., DCP)
