A lyrical second feature by filmmaker and photographer Khalik Allah, Black Mother is a kind of tone film-poem, deep with atmosphere. Using a vast array of voices and characters, from charismatic priests to sex workers, the film captures the pluralism of Jamaica's overlapping worlds, traversing the sacred and profane, the imaginative and the historical. Using a haunting style and rhythm, moving from gritty Super-8mm to precise HD video, Black Mother affirms its maker's eye for detail, intimate portraiture and complex tapestries of encounters. It cements Khalik Allah as one of the great non-fiction stylists of today.
