USA, 1991, directed by Julie Dash. Set in 1902, this is a languid look at the Gullah culture of the sea islands off the coast of South Carolina and Georgia where African folk-ways were maintained well into the 20th Century and were one of the last bastions of these mores in America. This is being shown as part of The Big Read: Coastal Georgia Reads Toni Morrison’s “Beloved.” 113 minutes; Rated PG.
