khalik allah’s ‘black mother’ is at the top of our must-see list

March 8, 2019

How lucky we are to have documentaries like Black Mother.

Khalik Allah has created an audio-visual love letter to Jamaica that is at the top of our watchlist. Described by director, producer, editor and cinematographer Allah, this work is half-film, half-baptism. Allah brings us on a journey of the Jamaica his mother grew up in and its inhabitants. This is the perfect follow-up to his previous film, House Niggas, which was described by the New York Times as “meditation on life on the streets of East Harlem.” Black Mother has been defined by Allah as:  “Thoroughly immersed between the sacred and profane, Black Mother channels rebellion and reverence into a deeply personal ode informed by Jamaica’s turbulent history but existing in the urgent present.”

We are very looking forward to experiencing this ode to Jamaica and life itself.
