Water Ritual #1: An Urban Rite of Purification
First screened in March 2013
Director: Barbara McCullough. Cast: Yolanda Vidato.
Shimmering image, tilting toward exoticism, suddenly discloses staggering poverty.
A poetic peak of the so-called L.A. Rebellion, a Southern California-based movement of African American indie filmmakers. Rarely screened today, but a landmark among its cohort.
