Julie Dash’s languorous, captivating portrait of a matriarchal family evokes the conflicts, desires and traditions of the Gullah community in vivid detail. The Peazant family wrestle with the pull of modernity and migration, away from the cultural heritage and folklore on which their world is built. Giving voice across generations, from an unborn child to ancestors past, this is an evocative and rapturous exploration of Black womanhood.
