Studio D's "Women at the Well" trilogy, which focuses on the lives and histories of Black Canadian women, brought literary legend Dionne Brand into collaboration with some of the most important voices in feminist Canadian filmmaking: Sylvia D. Hamilton, Claire Prieto and Ginny Stikeman. In Long Time Comin', the final instalment of the trilogy, Brand charts the work of two Black queer Canadian artists: folk/jazz singer-songwriter Faith Nolan and multimedia visual artist Grace Channer. Using a combination of interviews and vérité footage of the women at work, Brand showcases their projects, as well as their thoughts on art, race and sexuality. Long Time Comin' speaks to Studio D's mandate to address the stories, lives and art of women who have been historically and structurally marginalized. Kiva Reardon
