Directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton

Speaking truth to power SUNSET BABY begins with the story of Nina, a strong and independent woman named after the rebellious songstress, as she is visited by her estranged father and former revolutionary in the Black liberation movement, Kenyatta. She can’t tell what he’s after, a fix to their broken relationship or the only physical items of value she ties to her mother – a collection of love letters written by her infamous parents. As the lives of father and daughter begin to intertwine, old wounds are revealed, generational differences exposed, and smoldering truths laid bare. Morisseau’s SUNSET BABY is an energetic and vibrant narrative of the duality and intersectionality of family, legacy, and liberation.
