“Ayoka remains an important filmmaker whose works inspire and celebrate

the richness of Black culture. Through her vision, we witness the pain and beauty

of the Black experience in a way that encourages hope and love. We need this.”

Ruby Dee, Academy Award Nominated Actress, Activist

 

“Chenzira’s work represents a commitment to a unique and original perspective…

a very real alternative to corporate culture’s mass produced images of Black life and culture.”

Spencer Moon Author REEL BLACK TALK:A Sourcebook for 50 American Filmmakers

 

“…risk taking filmmaking at its best.”

Variety

 

“a robust evocation of Black milieu.”

The New York Times

 

“… raucous, brash and exceedingly funny.”

Los Angeles Film Report

 

“…a marvel of social satire. An important change in the tradition of Black cinema

with its ability to take the serious seriously, but also laugh at the absurd.”

Boston Globe
