ALMA’S RAINBOW + HAIR PIECE
AYOKA CHENZIRA | USA | 1994 + 1984 | 85 MIN + 10 MIN | NR | ENGLISH | 4K
Recently restored, this spirited 90s coming-of-age story follows a young woman in Brooklyn discovering her own autonomy as she confronts the seemingly rigid tutelage of her mother and more free spirited, showbiz loving aunt.
Presented by Julie Dash, the 4K restoration by Milestone Films, the Academy Archives, and the Film Foundation reestablishes the award-winning filmmaker Ayoka Chenzira’s debut feature as a cornerstone of 90s independent cinema. It will be preceded by Chenzira’s groundbreaking mixed medium short confronting the standards of European beauty.
