SPIT ON THE BROOM

(SPIT ON THE BROOM)

United States, 2019, 12'

International Competition 3

For women who can keep a secret” reads the introduction of the United Order of Tents, the oldest Black women organization in the United States, which used underground routes to free enslaved people from the South, even before the Civil War. By reading public documents, filmmaker Madeleine Hunt-Ehrlich conceives a fabric of mythical and suggestive imagery, inviting the viewer to assemble, along with the film, a repertoire against oblivion and colonialism.
