All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt

Time is a tender embrace.

Raven Jackson

Tender caresses and enveloping embraces are portals into the life of Mack, a Black woman in Mississippi. Winding through the anticipation, love, and heartbreak she experiences from childhood to adulthood, the expressionist journey is an ode to connection — with loved ones and with place. This film is part of the Women in Film Series taking place March 7th - 10th at Sidewalk Cinema.

Sidewalk’s Women In Film Week will feature important, innovative and influential films directed or written by women. This celebration of Women in Film will acknowledge the important artistic and technical contributions made by females in the industry. In addition to first run and retrospective film screenings, the week will offer related panels, workshops, networking/social activities – creating space for the entire community, filmmakers and audiences alike.

Take advantage of the Sidewalk Early Bird Special on Thursday afternoon screenings before 5pm. $5 Tickets, free coffee, on-screen captions (when provided by distributors), and reduced theatre capacity.
