“DRYLONGSO returns to us utterly, subtly, chidingly prescient.”
—The New York Times
“Exudes the DIY charm of a low-budget, first-time feature while keenly depicting the complexities of both race- and gender-related inequalities.”
After being confronted with the bleak statistics surrounding Black male life, young art student Pica Sullivan—in a striking performance by Toby Smith—begins photographing the Black men around her as a means to preserve their memory. An amalgamation of genre and an emblem of DIY filmmaking, Cauleen Smith’s DRYLONGSO is a saturated and prescient confrontation of race, gender, and class in 1990s America.
