All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt

Milwaukee Film Festival

Raven Jackson's feature debut is a richly-layered ode to generations of people and places, tracing decades of a woman's life in Mississippi. With the luxuriating pace of a summer evening, the film allows audiences to linger on ideas of grief, longing, and memory all while gazing on luminously lensed visuals. Jackson is one to watch.
