IWOW: I Walk on Water

 ● 2020 ● 198 mins ● 15 - Contains strong language, drug references.

From visionary artist and photographer Khalik Allah, I Walk on Water is an intimate and visually stunning deep dive into Harlem after dark. The film focuses around Frenchie, a 60-something schizophrenic, homeless Haitian man, who Allah becomes increasingly intertwined with. In parallel, Allah, the filmmaker behind Black Mother, also turns the camera on himself to document a turbulent romantic relationship and grapple with personal notions of spirituality and mortality – all inquiries about which he gathers advice from charismatic confidants including Fab 5 Freddy, members of the Wu-Tang Clan, and, in deeply moving exchanges, his own mother.
