I Walk on Water (2020)
At night, the streets of Harlem are haunted by lost souls. Bodies that drift around in the darkness and bear the weight of the past on their shoulders. The Haitian man Frenchie is one of them, and his accentuated stutter bears witness to exile and years of abuse. But he is more than just that in Khalik Allah’s new, hypnotic film opus, which turns the American tradition of social realist street photography into its own art form.
