United States 1982 30 mins. In English

A portrait of familial reconciliation and truth-telling in the face of a haunting past of domestic violence and drug abuse, Suzanne, Suzanne follows the titular subject, a young black woman, and her ordeals in seeking answers from her mother after years of silence between them and following the death of her father, who had a history of terrorizing the family. Conceived by Billops as a kind of intervention, the film speaks innumerable truths about the legacy of violence in the family.
