A String of Pearls: The Films of Camille Billops & James Hatch
As featured in DeadlineHyperallergic, and The New Yorker

"The filmmakers develop a distinctive, stylistically original, and practically effective framework of both image and staging in order to unleash pent-up words and emotions."

 Richard Brody, The New Yorker

The first-ever worldwide theatrical retrospective of the complete films of Camille Billops and James Hatch centers Black cultural life and storytelling on screen with six autobiographical works that innovate documentary form and artfully weave together personal histories and social issues.

This worldwide theatrical release is possible through support from the Ford Foundation and the cooperation of Dion Hatch and the Hatch-Billops Collection Estate. The new 4K restoration of Suzanne, Suzanne is by IndieCollect with thanks to Sandra Schulberg, Eva Yuma and team. TWN Exhibitions are supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts.
