The Revival
Women and the Word
First screened in September 2016
Director: Sekiya Dorsett. Documentary following a cohort of black lesbian poets on their tour of the United States.

Twitter Capsule: Humble but lively record of a literary tour that clearly meant the world to many of its audiences.

VOR:   Welcome access to some warm and memorable performances; just as memorable for moments when the U.S. isn't so receptive. Production values minimal.
