Museum of the Moving Image - Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Khalik Allah. 2018, 77 mins. Digital projection. Part film, part baptism, Black Mother brings us on a spiritual journey through Jamaica. Soaking up its bustling metropolises and tranquil countryside, director Khalik Allah (Field Niggas) introduces us to a succession of vividly rendered souls who call this island home. Their candid testimonies create a polyphonic symphony, set against a visual prayer of indelible portraiture. Thoroughly immersed in both the sacred and profane, Black Mother channels rebellion and reverence into a deeply personal ode informed by Jamaica’s turbulent history yet existing in the urgent present.
