Daughters of the Dust

Texas Spirit Theater

December 13, 2016 7:00pm - 8:20pm

New restoration! Before there was Beyoncé’s Lemonade, there was Julie Dash’s Daughters of the Dust, the stunning and seminal 1991 poetic drama that was a milestone in the history of American independent film, and the first feature film by an African American woman to be released in theaters.

This presentation will be hosted by Austin Film Society Head of Film & Creative Media Holly Herrick.

The Bullock Museum is proud to partner with Austin Film Society to offer a number of special screenings while the AFS Cinema is being renovated. For more information about this exciting project, and how you can be a part of it, see https://austinfilm.org/cinema.
