The Grand Cinema Tuesday Film – SKINFOLK : Sheree’s Story & Daugthers of the Dust

February 25, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Join The Grand Cinema on Tuesday 2/25 for a film screening of SKINFOLK: SHEREE’S STORY with Grant Spark recipient CHIMAERA. The film plays with DAUGHTERS OF THE DASH. In 1991, filmmaker Julie Dash made history when the film became the first feature film by an African American woman to have a wide release. Twenty-five years later, Beyoncé paid homage to the film through her breathtakingly lush visual album, LEMONADE.

“I decided that I wanted to tell a story that was authentic to African American culture—authentic to the point where it was not like something you could turn on the television and see. I wanted it to be more like a foreign film and so deeply into the culture that it appeared to be foreign.” — Filmmaker Julie Dash
