About Black Mother

Black Mother | Directed by Khalik Allah: Part film, part baptism, in Black Mother director Khalik Allah brings us on a spiritual journey through Jamaica. Soaking up its bustling metropolises and tranquil countryside, Allah introduces us to a succession of vividly rendered souls who call this island home. Their candid testimonies create a polyphonic symphony, set against a visual prayer of indelible portraiture. 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. [77 mins; documentary; English]

“One of the Ten Best Films of the Year. An astonishing film… it casts a spell from the start and is impossible to forget afterward.” — Alissa Wilkinson, Vox

“This is filmmaking as baptism; there’s almost nothing else like it.” — K. Austin Collins, Vogue

"Gliding from color to black and white, from digital to analog, from grim realism to spiritual ecstasy, the film  offers a song of praise to the island of Jamaica and a reckoning with its painful history and hard-pressed present." — A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"An undeniably transcendental spiritual awakening in audiovisual form." — Carlos Aguilar, Los Angeles Times
