Praise House

This video uses stunningly beautiful and innovative techniques to tell the story of a young woman moved to dance by a powerful and creative spirit. Despite her mother's disinterest, Hannah is driven to express herself artistically by angels that only she and her grandmother can see. Set and filmed in the South, PRAISE HOUSE combines theatre, dance and music based on rhythms and rituals that originated among African slaves. With the featured dance troupe, Urban Bush Women, founder and choreographer Zawole Willa Jo Zollar joins director Julie Dash in constructing a story that pays tribute to visionaries who, without any formal training, create compelling, mystic art.
