Film Screening: "I is a Long-Memoried Woman" (Frances Anne-Solomon, 1990, 50 minutes, England, in English, Color, DVD), presented in connection with the Nasher Museum of Art's exhibition, "Wangechi Mutu: A Fantastic Journey."

This extraordinary video chronicles the history of slavery through the eyes of Caribbean women. A striking combination of monologue, dance, and song - griot-style - conveys a young African woman's quest for survival in the new world. Based on award-winning poems by Guyanese British writer Grace Nichols, the evocatively rendered story charts abusive conditions on sugar plantations, acts of defiance and the rebellion which led to eventual freedom. Produced by a Black women's collective, "I Is A Long-Memoried Woman" illuminates Black diasporic culture and heritage. -- Won a Gold Medal for Performing Arts at the 1990 New York International Film and TV Festival!
