Ahhh... how I love this movie; a rare gem of its time, and I'd say still very much is a rarity today, some 47 years after it was initially released. That should not only tell you how good it is, but also how far what we call black cinema has come since then (not much at all).

Yet another reason to attend Sundance 2012, if already announced lineup of films didn't push you over the fence... another honor for Julie Dash's seminal film; plus she's expected to be there in person to introduce it and participate in a discussion afterward.
