Directed by Julie Dash | 1991

With Alva Rogers, Bahni Turpin, Barbara-O, Cheryl Lynn Bruce, Cora Lee Day, Tony King, Trula Hoosier

“A gorgeously impressionistic history of the Gullah people.”
—Washington Post

Julie Dash’s gorgeous evocation of early-20th century Gullah life chronicles three generations of women in the Peazant family—descendants of slaves living on the Sea Islands off the coast of South Carolina—as several prepare to leave home to migrate north. Steeped in the language, culture, and customs of the Gullah people, Daughters of the Dust is a dreamy, at times mystic, celebration of folk traditions and black womanhood. Its sumptuous images (which were a widely cited key influence on Beyoncé’s visual album Lemonade) shimmer anew in this ravishing restoration.
