“One of the memorable feminist movies of that decade and never more resonant than it is today.”
Artforum

One hot, Louisiana summer leads an affluent family to ruin when 10-year-old Eve discovers their home is built upon a series of illusions. A Black cinema classic, this Southern Gothic coming-of-age tale from director Kasi Lemmons is “still quite unlike any film before or since” and “remains a mesmerizing, haunting film about memory, history and family.” (Sight & Sound) Produced by, and starring, Samuel L. Jackson. In 35mm.
