All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt – Film Screening

Woodward Theater

$12 – $15

All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt

See a Soul Cinema film screening of All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt at Woodward Theater on May 13, presented by The Voice of Black Cincinnati.

A lyrical, decades-spanning exploration of a woman’s life in Mississippi, the feature debut from award-winning poet, photographer, and filmmaker Raven Jackson is a haunting and richly layered portrait, a beautiful ode to the generations of people and places that shape us.

Shot in 35mm film, each scene represents a snapshot of the life of Mackenzie, better known as Mack, among her friends and family. She is depicted as a child in 1970, learning how to fish with her father, as a teenager, flirting with her best friend-turned-crush, and being cradled as a baby by her mother.

The film moves freely in time, reveling in the beauty of nature and the minutiae of human connection. Showing symbols such as a pair of intertwined hands, a slow, swaying dance, and a lingering hug. Watch its characters contend with love, loss, grief, joy, and the unexpected moments shaping a life.
