The Inheritance

(Ephraim Asili, 2020, USA, 100 minutes)

Set in a Black artists collective in West Philadelphia, Ephraim Asili's feature debut The Inheritance functions in a multitude of ways and doesn't easily conform to any one mode of filmmaking. A celebration of Black art and artists, a political call to action (using the MOVE bombing of 1985 as a central reference point), and an examination of the frustrations of living with and relying on other people, The Inheritance is a text that feels like something that began in the work of Jean-Luc Godard and Spike Lee and grew to into its own distinct voice.
