THE REVIVAL: WOMEN AND THE WORD 

2016 / USA / Documentary

Director Sekiya Dorsett’s road-trip style documentary follows The Revival, queer women of color bringing their poetry, song and conversation to audiences across the country. These women explore the world through the power of the written word, using their lives to engage in a dialogue of discovery, honesty and acceptance. The film moves beyond simple portraiture into larger issues of self expression, gender, race and sexuality, themes enriched by insightful interviews with leading Black feminist thinkers and historians, including Dr. Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Nikky Finney, and Alexis De Veaux. THE REVIVAL is a rare glimpse into a special sisterhood that amplifies marginalized voices, using community to broadcast an entire movement reverberating with possibility.
