Black American Film Festival: Celebrating Voices of Love, History, & Freedom
Hosted by Dr. Erin Watley
2018; 1 h 40 m; PG-13 for a scene of violence and brief strong language
Hunted by mysterious forces, a young woman who has supernatural abilities must go on the run when her powers are discovered. With nowhere else to go, she flees back to her family and the farmhouse she abandoned long ago. There, while being pursued by the local sheriff, she begins to mend the broken relationships with her mother and daughter and learns that the power she needed was inside her all along.
This festival date also features a screening of Hair Love (2019), a short film following the story of a man who must do his daughter’s hair for the first time.
Each Black American Film Festival screening will feature a brief introduction and a facilitated post-show discussion with Dr. Watley (Assoc. Professor of Communication & Cinema at McDaniel College).
