Set in rural Louisiana, the film explores the relationships within a southern black protestant community, examining the roots of toxic masculinity, how manhood is defined and the dichotomous role of religion within the black community.

“Director Phillip Youmans is an NYU film student and the first African American director to win Tribeca’s Founders Award for Best Narrative Feature. BURNING CANE also won Best Actor for Wendell Pierce (CLEMENCY, SELMA) and Best Cinematography for Youmans.” Presented by the Sankofa Film Society.
