Praise for Mississippi Damned “The film presents a brutally honest, extraordinary haunting and deeply emotional portrait of a dysfunctional family trying to come to terms with its own tortured legacy.” – Ebony Jet Online “Expertly directed and beautifully shot and scored, featuring unforgettable performances by a tremendous ensemble cast this a film of rare accomplishment. ” – indieWIRE “Raw and powerful…plaudits to filmmaker Tina Mabry for her tightly wound and powerfully explosive story.” – The Hollywood Reporter “Dark, uncompromising, and unflinching, Mississippi Damned is pure power all around” – Edge Magazine “This riveting ensemble film is one of the most original American debuts I’ve seen in some time” – Phawker Blog “Mabry has put together a stable of actors that make up easily the best ensemble I’ve seen this year.” – Atlanta’s Reel Fanatic Blog “Mississippi Damned is a rare, exceptional film, one that covers enormous amounts of emotional territory and manages to impart sadness and hope in equal measures.” – After Ellen “It is the year’s best film. Last year, I sat through all the nominees for Best Film for the Academy Awards and this independent film stands shoulder to shoulder with them. We can only hope that more people are able to view this film on a larger scale across country as it is a story which needs to be told.” – The Rainbow Collective Help Get the Word Out!
