Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A film of spellbinding visual beauty. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Dec 1, 2016

Fresh: Daughters of the Dust is a film with a lot on its mind, but one that wears its agendas with lyrical lightness. – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times, Dec 1, 2016

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. – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times, Nov 24, 2016

Fresh: Daughters of the Dust abounds with stunning motifs and tableaux, the iconography seemingly sourced from dreams as much as from history and folklore. – Melissa Anderson, Village Voice, Nov 17, 2016
