Drylongso is an old African-American term that means “ordinary” or “just the same old thing.” Cauleen Smith’s remarkable debut film addresses both the tragic ordinariness of violence and the extraordinary beauty found right in front of us. Pica, a young woman from Oakland, California, is failing her photography class. Yet she spends her time snapping endless Polaroids of young, black men whom she believes are an endangered species. Full of irony and inspired by the rhythms and lyrics of hip-hop music, Drylongso breathes fresh air into the popular notions of black culture.
