ReMixed and ReMastered Volume 2: The 20th Anniversary of Daughters of the Dust

In 1990, Julie Dash's critically acclaimed film Daughters of the Dust won the award for Best Cinematography at the Sundance Film Festival. The film was then released in 1992 through an innovative theatrical distribution model devised collaboratively by KJM3 Entertainment Group and Kino International. On Friday, March 9, a new generation of viewers will be introduced to Daughters of the Dust at the conference Remixed and Remastered Volume 2. Continuing the dialogue from the last year's conference Remixed and Remastered: Defining and Distributing The Black Image in the Era of Globalization, we also reflect upon the film's innovative and successful distribution model. Following this year's announcement of Ava DuVernay as the first African-American woman to win the Sundance award for Best Directing, we ask, "How far have we come?"
