Director: Khalik Allah

Available to stream at home from Friday 26 February

From visionary artist and photographer Khalik Allah (director of Black Mother and cinematographer of Beyoncé’s Lemonade), IWOW: I Walk On Water is an intimate and visually stunning deep dive into Harlem after dark.

In IWOW: I Walk On Water, Allah focuses on his longtime muse, a 60-something homeless Haitian man names Frenchie. Beautifully capturing the fleeting moments as their lives become increasingly intertwined, the documentary is a stirring portrait of life on the margins in contemporary America.

Alongside Frenchie’s life on the street, Allah also turns his camera inward; exploring his own turbulent relationship with his long-distance girlfriend and grappling with personal notions of spirituality and mortality.

Gathering advice from charismatic confidants including Fab 5 Freddy, members of the Wu-Tang Clan, and, in deeply moving exchanges, his own mother, IWOW: I Walk On Water is a profoundly affecting and rich portrayal of an artist and his world.
