ABOUT THE FILM:
Black Mother (Khalik Allah | USA | 77)
Part film, part baptism, in Black Mother director Khalik Allah brings us on a spiritual odyssey through Jamaica. Soaking up its bustling metropolises and tranquil countryside, Allah introduces us to a succession of vividly rendered souls who call this island home. Their candid testimonies create a polyphonic symphony, set against a visual prayer of indelible portraiture.Immersed into the sacred, the profane, and everything in-between, Black Mother channels rebellion and reverence into a deeply personal ode informed by Jamaica’s turbulent history but existing in the urgent present. Black Mother was the recipient of the 2015 Rooftop Films and Technological Cinevideo Services Camera Grant.
