Black Feminist Film School Presents Experimental Shorts Tonight, In Durham, NC
1

Water Ritual

Of the titles included in the listed lineup, the only one I can say I've seen is Vanilla Sex by Cheryl Dunye, which is one of the films featured in the DVD compilation disk, The Early Works Of Cheryl Dunye (a collection of 6 short fiction films by the filmmaker, and which you can rent or purchase on DVD today).

But for those of you in the Durham, NC area, some info you could use for an event taking place tonight (courtesy of the AfroFuturist Affair):
