Newly released first black mermaid film donates movie tail as a permanent exhibition at the International Mermaid Museum located in Aberdeen, Washington. Two screenings will be held on June 24 and 25 and will feature special guests, director, Christine W Chen and lead actress/mermaid, Leila Annastasia Scott, who plays Erzulie.
Tilt Magazine says: “Erzulie Is a Fierce Feminist Mermaid’s Tale. Erzulie is a film made of rituals and confessions, the supernatural appearing where fear and rage intertwine. Fiercely feminist and socially conscious; it’s a horror film that honors female friendships, offers vengeance on behalf of wronged women, and reminds us to respect each other and the bodies of water we enjoy.”
