An upset young girl is hugged by her stoic mother as they sit on some steps.

About Eve’s Bayou

Breaking onto the scene with one of the most acclaimed feature filmmaking debuts of the 1990s, director Kasi Lemmons drew on a rich Southern Gothic tradition to craft a profoundly mysterious, densely atmospheric family drama set deep in the Louisiana bayou of the early 1960s.

With Creole mysticism imbued into every frame, Eve’s Bayou is a dreamlike slice of Southern Gothic that's also very clearly a story about women - mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sisters and aunts.

Screening as part of the Bad Mums: Motherhood In Cinema season to accompany the touring exhibition Acts Of Creation: On Art and Motherhood.
