2016. USA. Dir: Kahlil Joseph, Beyoncé Knowles Carter et al. 66 min.
A year and a half after its surprise drop on HBO, Beyoncé’s “visual album” stands a bravura work of visual storytelling, lyrical prowess, and poetic reclamation. The film synthesizes dozens of directors’, writers’, and cinematographers’ visions into one comprehensive package: an exquisite portrait of both the singer’s individual life story and the universal experiences of Black women in America.
