Time Out says
Catch a free screening of the critically lauded Daughters of the Dust—the first feature directed by an African American woman (Julie Dash) ever theatrically released in the US. The film poetically tells the story of three generations of Gullah women living on a Georgia island in 1902 and their migration northward in order to change with the times, while their Creole dialect adds a heavy dose of realism. The event is part of LACMA's Altadena Art + Film lab, a community event full of free film workshops and outdoor movie screenings at Charles White Park (77 Mountain View St).
