Words posted on the Dark Girls Facebook page over the last week; tickets are now officially on sale for each screening, so if you live in any of the above cities, better pick up yours now, because I'm guessing they'll go fast, given all the conversation the film has inspired on this site, and elsewhere, since it was first introduced to the world a few months ago.

I haven't seen the film yet, so I'll make an effort to attend the NYC screening at the Apollo Theater on the 13th, next month.

And if you missed it, listen to our October interview with Bill Duke and D. Channsin Berry (the directors and producers of the film) below.

    Yes. I think it was intentional. Bill Duke is an experienced Director.

    I'm really looking forward to watching the film, but...and here's where I'm going to get into trouble........ am I the only one who is a little concerned with the production (at times the lighting too dark) and lack of a makeup artist. I really wasn't going to say anything, but this poster, ehhhh....... Even in this poster, the young lady has next to no makeup and there is next to no retouching. We just need to be 100% in everything we do...I'm a little surprised, but still looking forward to seeing it.

    Important movie, though...

    ehhh??? That is the beautiful hue of a black person. The retouching of a poster hides the truth. EVERYTHING is shaded by some type of cover-up. The movie is meant to expose. As dark-skinned women I think the poster would be slightly insulting if yet again something was used to cover such beauty. White, Black, Yellow, whatever touching up any human image obscures and should be reconsidered in all lines of media unless hiding is the angle.

    Considering the doc is about exposing and delving into dark skin colorism/prejudices, I'll bet a million dollars that was intentional.
