We were thrilled to welcome Raven Jackson to sit down with Film Comment co-deputy editor and NYFF Talks programmer Devika Girish to discuss Jackson’s All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt, poetry, portraits, and more.

One of the most visually striking, profoundly moving American moviemaking debuts in years, Jackson’s film is an arresting immersion into the inner world of a young woman raised in rural Mississippi. An A24 release.

Enjoy the conversation with Jackson below, and subscribe here for more filmmaker conversations.

If you missed All Dirt Roads Taste of Salt at NYFF, see it when it opens at Film at Lincoln Center on November 3, with tickets on sale now.
