Overview

Khalik Allah’s Black Mother alternates between the sacred and the profane in a vivid survey of multiple generations living in Jamaica. “A proclamation, a poem and a prayer punctuated by three trimesters; Black Mother is an audio-visual love letter to Jamaica,” explains Allah, “There’s no container for this film, it overflows with intimate portraiture and prayers that are intended to hit you in the chest more than the head.” Featured in New Directors, New Films in 2018, and currently showcased on the Criterion Channel.
