Directed by Khalik Allah | 2018

Part film, part baptism, in Black Mother director Khalik Allah brings us on a spiritual exploration of Jamaica. Absorbing the bustling metropolis and the tranquil countryside, Allah introduces us to a succession of vividly rendered souls who call this island home. Their candid testimonies create a polyphonic symphony, set against a visual prayer of indelible, hallucinatory, collage-like portraiture. Immersed in the sacred, the profane, and everything in-between, Black Mother channels rebellion and reverence into a deeply personal and visionary ode, one informed by Jamaica’s turbulent history but existing in the urgent present.

Appearance by director Khalik Allah
