Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A film of spellbinding visual beauty.
Fresh: Daughters of the Dust is a film with a lot on its mind, but one that wears its agendas with lyrical lightness.
Fresh: Its examination of a bygone way of life is so patient and evocative, so beholden to its own storytelling conventions and rhythms, that watching it is a bit like submitting to a form of time travel.
Fresh: Daughters of the Dust abounds with stunning motifs and tableaux, the iconography seemingly sourced from dreams as much as from history and folklore.
