Daughters of the Dust

4 years, 4 months ago at Jan 11 22:32
Julie Dash’s directorial debut, Daughters of the Dust, explores a legacy of slavery never given resonance or thought in American history, fiction, or cinema. Here is the Gullah island culture writ large and given a chance to reveal itself to a wider audience. Dash’s camera is less of a coherent narrative then it is a poetic, near novelistic exploration of family legacy that rolls backwards and... read more
View all Daughters of the Dust reviews
Daughters of the Dust provides a rapturously textured, wholly mesmerizing glimpse into the Gullah culture of the sea islands off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia where African folk-ways were maintained well into the 20th Century. Set in 1902, first-time writer-director Julie Dash's exquisitely alive film is a costume drama about the Peazant family, a fictional group of Gullah natives living on Ido Landing. The secluded family experiences conflicts surrounding religion, industrialization, and tradition.

Daughters of the Dust

“Julie Dash’s directorial debut, Daughters of the Dust, explores a legacy of slavery never given resonance or thought in American history, fiction, or cinema. Here is the Gullah island culture writ large and given a chance to reveal itself to a wider audience. Dash’s camera is less of a coherent narrative then it is a poetic, near novelistic exploration of family legacy that rolls backwards and forwards through time revealing or filling in details as it goes.   What emerges is a rapturously beautiful film that is involving in how mysterious it is. The Gullah dialect and language are difficult to traverse at first but soon becomes immersive and easier to grasp as the film goes along. It is largely told through the faces and voices of black women and girls as their family prepares to l” read more

" Languid look at the Gullah culture of the sea islands off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia where African folk-ways were maintained well into the 20th Century and was one of the last bastions of these mores in America. Set in 1902."
