Georgia, Georgia (1972)

Maya Angelou wrote and scored the music for this provocative tale of interracial attraction.

Film details


In a fearless performance, Sands plays sensual black American songstress Georgia, who falls for a white photographer while touring Sweden.

Via the intense disapproval of Georgia’s assistant/’hired mother’, writer Maya Angelou uncovers the pathology of racism while centring on the prodigious yet obscured experiences of black women.
