2019 / 60min / DCP

DIRECTOR: JA'TOVIA GARY

Combining footage shot in Harlem and Claude Monet’s famous gardens in Giverny, France, Gary employs a dizzying array of cinematic techniques—including animations overlaid on archival film and spontaneous woman-to-woman street interviews—in her coruscating contemplation of Black female performers, examining both their triumphs and the mournful history of their exploitation and commodification.
