The Archive is renowned for its pioneering efforts to rescue, preserve and showcase moving image media. It is dedicated to ensuring that film history is explored and enjoyed for generations to come.

Daughters of the Dust (1991), directed by L.A. Rebellion filmmaker Julie Dash, screens at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston on Saturday, February 8. The 35mm print was restored by UCLA Film & Television Archive.

This screening follows one on January 23 at Doc Films, a student-run organization at the University of Chicago. Daughters of the Dust (1991) was shown as part of the “Stills for Sisters in Cinema: African American Women Filmmakers” film series, which so far has also screened Alile Sharon Larkin’s film A Different Image (1982), another Archive restoration.

Stills for Sisters in Cinema: African American Women Filmmakers continues through March 13.
