In recognition of Black History Month, Acropolis is pleased to present a screening of All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt, in partnership with NeueHouse and A24, followed by a conversation with director Raven Jackson and critic and programmer Miriam Bale.

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.

TRT: 92 min

In person: Raven Jackson

"A treasure of community, a bold depiction of Black life, and a sumptuously crafted piece of personal storytelling." —Robert Daniels, The Playlist

"Sublime. It tastes of earth. It tastes of grass. It tastes of grief and glee and mealtimes at the family table. It tastes, of course, of salt." —Jessica Kiang, Variety

"A film that feels like a world come alive—or, rather, two worlds, Jackson’s inner one and the outer one of shared experience." —Richard Brody, The New Yorker

"A film that's almost entirely composed of transitional moments, but when Jackson gets the balance right, those moments don't just feel as if they could last forever, they feel as if they already do." —David Erlich, Indiewire

"All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt flows intuitively. Jackson has composed a sensory poem of extraordinary tactility and stealthy emotional force, but she has also constructed a story from fragments you immediately recognize and contextualize." —Justin Chang, The Los Angeles Times
