“A film that I saw for the first time in college, in an African American art history class I was taking. I truly appreciated the vivid cinematography, colors and costumes in this film. Like The Color of Pomegranates, it feels like a visual poem, representing the past, present, and future through the voice of an unborn child of the film’s protagonist. Dash embraces a nonlinear narrative structure, making the story feel familiar by tapping into the mood and atmosphere of the island, the family and their histories. It’s a really beautiful, poetic film that you experience differently each time.”—Alexandria Smith
