Four Women

An imaginatively choreographed dance interpretation of the ballad by Nina Simone on four common stereotypes of Black women.

Reviews
"A dance film set to the music of Nina Simone; her breakthrough work."
- BAMcinematek

Set to Nina Simone’s stirring ballad of the same name, Julie Dash’s dance film features Linda Martina Young as strong “Aunt Sarah,” tragic mulatto “Saffronia,” sensuous “Sweet Thing” and militant “Peaches.” Kinetic camerawork and editing, richly colored lighting, and meticulous costume, makeup and hair design work together with Young’s sensitive performance to turn longstanding Black female stereotypes to oblique, critical angles.
