The Toronto Premiere of BLACK MOTHER with director Khalik Allah in attendance! MDFF Selects Presented by Cinema Scope and TIFF is programmed by a group of local filmmakers and writers dedicated to discovering and championing new cinematic voices.

Following his extraordinary debut Field Niggas and his contributions to Beyoncé's powerful album-film Lemonade, NYC street photographer and filmmaker Khalik Allah returns to his mother's home of Jamaica to make this impressionist, polyphonic character diary. As in his first film, Allah separates his images from his sounds, so that his portraits — which gravitate towards the downtrodden, the damaged, the veterans of life, and numerous beautiful women — are seen out of sync with the soundtrack, which is predominantly comprised of interviews with and rhapsodies by the subjects we are watching. Allah seems to have picked up the gauntlet thrown down by the contemporary cinema of Terrence Malick, taking the American master's floating, ecstatic freedom of camera, character, and storytelling and reinventing it for the Vimeo era of gaspingly pretty, highly individualized art-filmmaking.
