Conversations wit de Churen IV: Play Wit De Churen

2005, 15:49 min, color, sound

Linzy's "Conversations Wit de Churen" series presents "a populous and intensely imagined narrative, one based in part on the soap operas and sitcoms he watched as a child," writes Holland Cotter in The New York Times. Linzy draws upon "the daytime drama format, with its turgid emoting and big secrets, to present the life of a fictional African-American family called the Braswells in the rural South."
