Kanopy Recommendations: Daughters of the Dust
This masterpiece of American cinema, an impressionistic poem of a movie filmed beautifully, is a languid telling of three generations of Gullah women on the South Carolina sea islands. Highly recommended. The Gullah Geechee people are the descendants of West and Central Africans who were enslaved and brought to the lower Atlantic states.
