Julie Dash

Director & Writer Known for "Daughters of the Dust"; First Black Woman to Direct A Full-Length General Theatrical Release Film in the U.S.

Julie Dash Biography

Julie Dash is a film director, writer and producer. Her 1991 feature film Daughters of the Dust was the first full-length film directed by a black woman to obtain general theatrical release in the United States. That film is a fictionalized retelling of her father’s Gullah family who lived off the coast of the Southeastern U.S. Daughters of the Dust is included in the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress for its cultural, historical and aesthetic significance.

Dash has written two books on Daughters of the Dust—a "making of" history co-written with Toni Cade Bambara and bell hooks, and a sequel, set 20 years after the film's story.

In 2002, Dash directed the television movie The Rosa Parks Story, which starred Angela Bassett as Parks.

Dash, who received her MFA in 1985 from the UCLA Film School, is one of the filmmakers of the L.A. Rebellion Film Movement. The L.A. Rebellion refers to the black filmmakers that studied at the UCLA Film School from the late 1960s to the late 1980s. Some of the other major figures of that movement include Charles Burnett, Larry Clark and Haile Gerima.
