USA | 77 minutes | DCP | Dir. Khalik Allah
From red light districts to lush rainforests, Black Mother (2018) is a loving and lyrical ode to Jamaica and its people, a visual poem that is at once a deeply felt love letter and an ecstatic street-corner prayer. Filmmaker Khalik Allah becomes immersed in the country's neighboring worlds of charismatic holy men and equally charismatic prostitutes.
