Daughters Of Lillith
Daughters Of Lilith is directed by Ravyn Wngz and features an all Black woman cast. Daughters of Lilith is the story of six complicated sisters who are bound together through blood, Blackness, femininity, the past and the present. Each sister has a dual nature which is symbolic of the very vital dual nature in all women. It is a story about how Black women survive love, loss, heartbreak, misogynoir and trauma.
The sisters reunite in the forest, searching for their mother Lilith and for ways to remember their personal and collective magic.
