Dir. Khalik Allah | 198 mins
In IWOW, Allah focuses on longtime muse Frenchie, a 60-something schizophrenic, homeless Haitian man, who he becomes increasingly intertwined with.
In parallel, Allah, the filmmaker behind Black Mother, also turns the camera on himself to document a turbulent romantic relationship and grapple with personal notions of spirituality and mortality – all inquiries about which he gathers advice from charismatic confidants including Fab 5 Freddy, members of the Wu-Tang Clan, and, in deeply moving exchanges, his own mother.
A Q&A with the film’s director Khalik Allah will be available for the weekend of the 26th February. The Q&A is hosted by Jonzi D who is in conversation with director Khalik Allah.
After this special event, the film will be available to stream from Dogwoof here >>
