TRIBUTE TO JULIE DASH
Filmmaker and author Julie Dash combined cinematic technique honed from her graduate work at UCLA during the “LA Rebellion” movement of Black Cinema and a desire to create uniquely female African American narrative films with her personal history of rich Gullah heritage to produce the 1991 groundbreaking and internationally acclaimed Daughters of the Dust, the first feature-length film by an African American woman with theatrical release in the US. Dash has continued to produce impressive works, including The Rosa Parks Story, Incognito, Funny Valentines, Love Song, and Subway Stories. Her upcoming projects include Travel Notes of a Geechee Girl, a documentary about writer- actor-griot-culinary anthropologist Vertamae Smart-Grosvenor.
