From Julie Dash, director of the critically acclaimed
DAUGHTERS OF THE DUST comes this highly
anticipated re-release of ILLUSIONS. Now you can enjoy, and teach, this film at the best quality. Perfect for institutions & libraries focused on cinema studies, African American Studies, and film history.
The time is 1942, a year after Pearl Harbor; the place is National Studios, a fictitious
Hollywood motion picture studio. Mignon Duprée, a Black woman
studio executive who appears to be white and Ester Jeeter, an African American
woman who is the singing voice for a white Hollywood star are forced to come to grips with a society that perpetuates false images as status quo. This highly-acclaimed drama by one of the leading African American women directors follows Mignon's dilemma, Ester's struggle and the use of cinema in wartime Hollywood: three illusions in conflict with reality.
