Archive/Counter-Archive is excited to partner with Toronto Queer Film Festival to present this classic Canadian documentary directed by Dionne Brand and produced by the National Film Board.
SYNOPSIS: There is a cultural revolution going on in Canada and Faith Nolan and Grace Channer are on the leading edge. These two African-Canadian lesbian artists give back to art its most urgent meanings--commitment and passion. Grace Channer's large and sensuous canvasses and musician Faith Nolan's gritty and joyous blues propel this documentary into the spheres of poetry and dance. Long Time Comin' captures their work, their urgency, and their friendship in intimate conversations with both artists.
There will be a Q&A following the screening.
