All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt

“A riveting emotional epic that will change you.” A24 has unveiled an official trailer for the beautiful film titled All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt, a one-of-a-kind work of art about a family in Mississippi. This first premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to rave reviews, and it’s playing at the New York Film Festival in October. A lyrical, decades-spanning exploration across 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. It’s a nearly dialogue-free experiential film, taking viewers on a journey across generations and through the back-roads of rural Mississippi. “An ode to the generations of people and places that shaped us.” Starring Charleen McClure, Moses Ingram, Reginald Helms Jr., Zainab Jah, with Sheila Atim and Chris Chalk. And it’s produced by Barry Jenkins. Definitely keep an eye out for this – it’s worth catching on the big screen.
