DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST 

Written, directed and produced by Julie Dash, Daughters of the Dust is a story told by an unborn child of three generations of Gullah women. Over the course of six years, she raised money to complete the film by showing the work in progress to raise seed money. The final film was distributed by Kino International in December of 1992 and went on to generate over $1.6 million domestically. In 2004, The Library of Congress placed Daughters of the Dust in the National Film Registry joining the other 400 American films preserved as National Treasures.
