Daughters Of The Dust says
Join the Detroit Film Theatre (DFT) at the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) for screenings of the landmark film "Daughters of the Dust" Friday, Nov. 25 through Sunday, Nov. 27. “Daughters of the Dust,” is a 1991 independent film written, directed and produced by Julie Dash, and the first feature film directed by an African American woman to be distributed theatrically in the United States. In 2004, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

Showtimes are:

Friday, Nov. 25 - 7 p.m.
Saturday, Nov. 26 - 7 p.m.
Sunday, Nov. 27 - 2 p.m.

On Nov. 27 at 4:30 p.m. interdisciplinary artist Jova Lynne and cultural producer Njia Kai will discuss the movie’s themes and talk about their experiences as women creators. Kai will also talk about her work on the film as a camerawoman. The dialogue will be followed by a short Q+A session.

There is no charge to attend the conversation on Nov. 27, but tickets for the movie are $9.50 for general admission and $7.50 for DIA members, seniors and students.

The Nov. 27 discussion is hosted by the DFT, DIA and the Black Artists Meet Up (BAMU). BAMU was established in response to the underrepresentation of black artists, writers and critics in the professional arts world. Each month, BAMU brings together emerging and established Detroit black artists and critics for conversation around contemporary artistic practice.
