Mary Jane Regalado Presents: Daughters of the Dust
Mary Jane Regalado (Gauche, Downtown Boys) is a musician, visual artist, DJ and occasional radio show host currently residing in Washington, D.C. Her interests include subversive media, Chicanx feminism, underground art and record collecting. Her favorite film is Zootopia.

THE FILM:

At the dawn of the 20th century, a multi-generational family in the Gullah community on the Sea Islands off of South Carolina  former West African slaves who adopted many of their ancestors Yoruba traditions  struggle to maintain their cultural heritage and folklore while contemplating a migration to the mainland, even further from their roots.

Cohen Media Group is proud to present the 25th anniversary restoration of director Julie Dashs landmark film Daughters of the Dust. The first wide release by a black female filmmaker, Daughters of the Dust was met with wild critical acclaim and rapturous audience response when it initially opened in 1991. Casting a long legacy, Daughters of the Dust still resonates today, most recently as a major in influence on Beyonces video album Lemonade. Restored (in conjunction with UCLA) for the first time with proper color grading overseen by cinematographer AJ Jafa, audiences will finally see the film exactly as Julie Dash intended.

"Dash's boldly imaginative, ecstatically visionary drama ... is one of the best of all American independent films; she turns one family's experience of the Great Migration into a vast mythopoetic adventure." Richard Brody, New Yorker

"This is balletic, operatic cinema, and a celebration of cinema itself." - Sight & Sound

"It is an astonishing, vivid portrait not only of a time and place, but of an era's spirit." - Rita Kempley, Washington Post

"Daughters of the Dust abounds with stunning motifs and tableaux, the iconography seemingly sourced from dreams as much as from history and folklore." - Village Voice

"Dash has created a cinematic essay that immerses her audience in a world no other film has explored." - People Magazine
