A LITANY FOR SURVIVAL: THE LIFE AND WORK OF AUDRE LORDE
Directed by Ada Gay Griffin & Michelle Parkerson
(1996, 90 min, USA)

This stunning portrait of Audre Lorde constellates the radical poetry, politics, and pedagogies that pivot around this singular figure. Michelle Parkerson and Ada Gay Griffin worked with Lorde for nearly a decade leading up to her death. She spent the twilight of her life in the Caribbean, an important place for the poet evoked in the sounds and shots of water interwoven with Lorde’s lyrical language and urgent voice as well as interviews with poets, activists, friends, and family members.
