Summary
Monique: An autobiographical film which uses story-telling and experimental techniques to explore the shadows of my childhood memories. The bruised footage and sharp editing help to create the mood for my first painful encounter with racism.
The cinematic jazz of Julie Dash: In this inspiring interview, Julie Dash speaks about her background, training, vision and struggle to bring Daughters of the Dust to the American movie screen.
Sisters in the life: first love: Dramatic documentary/narrative set in the early 1970s and 1990s. Donna Rose, a thirty-something Black lesbian recounts the story of her first experience with love. At 14, she has a boyfriend and a best girlfriend. In flashbacks, Donna focuses on the feelings she had for her girlfriend Karen. Her current day relationship with Maggie provides a romantic parallel.
Missing relations: On February 20, 1969, my mother gave birth to twin daughters. Six months later, their father "kidnapped" them. We never saw my sisters again. Missing Relations is an experimental dramatic documentary which explores loss and denial in an African American family through the story of my kidnapped twin sisters, erased from family history for 24 years.
Remembering Wei Yi-fang, remembering myself: A witty and original autobiographical documentary about coming-to-terms with race, culture and self. My six-year stay in Taiwan transforms my understanding of what it means to be an African American and illuminates my connection with my Honduran-born grandmother.
The taste of dirt: A short narrative film which explores issues of race and class as experienced by 7-year-old African American girls on the school playground.
