Documentary screening: Long Time Comin’

Presented in collaboration with the Massimadi Festival, Long Time Comin’ is a documentary by Dionne Brand.

Long Time Comin’

There is a cultural revolution going on in Canada and Faith Nolan and Grace Channer are on the leading edge. These two African-Canadian lesbian artists give back to art its most urgent meanings: commitment and passion. Grace Channer’s large and sensuous canvases and musician Faith Nolan’s gritty and joyous blues propel this documentary into the spheres of poetry and dance. Long Time Comin’ captures their work, their urgency, and their friendship in intimate conversations with both artists.

Long Time Comin’, Canada, 1993, 52 min, Dionne Brand. In English with French subtitles.
