In 1991, Julie Dash made history when she became the first African-American woman to direct and produce a feature film that was widely distributed in the U.S. Set in 1902, it tells the story of three generations of women living on an island off the coast of South Carolina as they prepare to migrate North to the mainland.

The film programme reflects the themes and concepts present within the exhibition, you feel me_. Each film will be introduced with a short talk, rooting each film within the context of the exhibition.
