Description

An electrifying portrait of writer and performer Okwui Okpokwasili and her acclaimed one-woman show titled Bronx Gothic.

Rooted in memories of her childhood, Okwui’s one-woman show fuses dance, song, drama and comedy to create a mesmerizing space in which audiences can engage with a story about two 12-year-old black girls coming of age in the 1980s. With intimate vérité access to Okwui – who’s worked with conceptual artists like Ralph Lemon and Julie Taymor – and her audiences off the stage, this film allows for unparalleled insight into the creative process as well as the complex social issues embodied in it. (2017, 91 min, digital)
