About the film:

Welcome Sessions presents Julie Dash’s 1991 cult classic, Daughters of the Dust.

Set in 1902, Daughters of the Dust tells the story of three generations of African American Gullah women who live in isolation on an island off the coast of South Carolina and risk losing their culture as they prepare for a new life on mainland U.S. 

Daughters of the Dust was the first feature film directed by an African American woman to have a mainstream theatrical release in the U.S. The dreamlike style and low-country gothic aesthetic was the inspiration for Beyonce’s Lemonade.

"It is a mysterious, fabular and sometimes dreamlike film with its own theatrical poise." - The Guardian
