UK PREMIERE IWOW: I Walk on Water + Q&A
Institute of Contemporary Arts

IWOW: I Walk on Water, dir. Khalik Allah, USA 2020, 198 min., English


‘I am a homeless saint,’ whispers a man against a black backdrop. IWOW: I Walk on Water is the monumental new diary film from New York-based director and photographer Khalik Allah. The film returns to 125th Street and Lexington Avenue in East Harlem, the same intersection at which Allah has based much of his work in recent years. Centred upon Allah’s longtime friendship with Frenchie, an homeless Haitian man, IWOW also acts as a record of the director’s recent life – documenting his relationships with his former girlfriend Camilla and an inner circle of confidantes, including Fab 5 Freddy, members of the Wu-Tang Clan and his mother.
 
This screening is followed by a Q&A with director Khalik Allah.
