5/5—Post-screening Q&A with director Kasi Lemmons

 
Eve’s Bayou

Dir. Kasi Lemmons
1997, 109min, 35mm
With Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Samuel L. Jackson, Lynn Whitfield

 

Kasi Lemmons made a splash with one of the most distinctive directorial debuts of the 1990s, a richly atmospheric, Southern Gothic stew of sex, lies, and voodoo in which a young girl witnesses secrets and deceptions tear her wealthy Louisiana family apart. A hothouse blend of Creole folklore, magic, and mysticism, Eve’s Bayou provides a scintillating showcase for a powerhouse ensemble of black actresses.

 
Dreadlocks and the Three Bears

Dir. Alile Sharon Larkin
1991, 12min

 

The classic Goldilocks fairy tale gets an Afrocentric twist in this playfully subversive construction paper cutout animation.
