The Gullah Project proudly presents the first cut to our documentary film.
Denise McGill directs the documentary that follows Gullah / Geechee residents of St. Helena Island, South Carolina. Taking much of their culture from their West African ancestors, St. Helena is one of the last Gullah farming and fishing communities left in America. Residents are now wrestling with gentrification, land preservation, and conservation issues.
The film is edited by Hida Visuals; many of Denise McGill’s students have also worked on the project.
