QUAD is delighted to have teamed up with Dogwoof Films to bring you brand new film I Walk On Water (15) which you can stream in your home, directly supporting us during our lockdown closure.
From visionary artist and photographer Khalik Allah, I Walk On Water (15) is an intimate and visually stunning deep dive into Harlem after dark.
In I Walk On Water, Allah focuses on longtime muse Frenchie, a 60-something schizophrenic, homeless Haitian man, who he becomes increasingly intertwined with. In parallel, Allah, the filmmaker behind Black Mother, also turns the camera on himself to document a turbulent romantic relationship and grapple with personal notions of spirituality and mortality – all inquiries about which he gathers advice from charismatic confidants including Fab 5 Freddy, members of the Wu-Tang Clan, and, in deeply moving exchanges, his own mother.
"Allah has a formidable talent for capturing character and image alike" - Screen Daily
A 48 Hour rental of I Walk On Water (15), costing £9.99, can be pre-ordered now. The film will become available on 26 February.
