Filmmaker Quote of the Day: Julie Dash


“…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.”

– Julie Dash, Director (DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST, the first feature film by a Black woman to be released theatrical in the U.S. in 1991.)
