Cycles

Directed by Zeinabu Irene Davis
With Stephanie Ingram
1989, 17min

 

Rasheeda Allen is waiting for her period, a state of anticipation familiar to all women. Drawing on Caribbean folklore, this exuberant experimental drama uses animation and live action to discover a film language unique to African American women. The multilayered soundtrack combines a chorus of women's voices with the music of Africa and the diaspora-including Miriam Makeba, acappella singers from Haiti and trumpetiste Clora Bryant.

 
On Becoming a Woman

Directed by Cheryl Chisholm
1987, 90min

 

This documentary provides rare insights into some important health issues for African American women. Filmed primarily during the National Black Women's Health Project workshop sessions, this historic film also demonstrates models for trust and communication between mothers and daughters.
