Chicago International Film Festival: All Dirt Roads Taste Of Salt
ALL DIRT ROADS TASTE OF SALT
U.S. • Director: Raven Jackson • 92m
Presented in partnership with The Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts and The Film Studies Center at The University of Chicago.
A lyrical, decades-spanning exploration across a woman’s life in Mississippi, the feature debut from award-winning poet, photographer, and filmmaker Raven Jackson and producer Barry Jenkins (Moonlight) is a haunting and richly layered portrait, and a beautiful ode to the generations of people and places that shape us.
Sumptuously shot on 35mm film with evocative sound design and elliptical editing, All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt unfolds like a dream, skipping around in time and seizing on key moments in its protagonist’s existence from infancy to adulthood. With a sensitive touch, each frame captures the fragile beauty of every passing second. What emerges is a stunningly tactile vision of family, womanhood, and the sights and sounds of the American South.
