IWOW: I Walk on Water (2020)

  • Documentary
  • 3h 20m

In I Walk on Water, director Khalik Allah focuses on long-time muse Frenchie, a 60-something homeless Haitian man, with whom he becomes increasingly involved. In parallel, the filmmaker turns the camera on himself to document a turbulent romantic relationship and grapple with notions of spirituality and mortality – all inquiries about which he gathers advice from charismatic confidents including Fab 5 Freddie, members of the Wu-Tang Clan, and, in deeply moving exchanges, his own mother. ‘IWOW is a sort of first-person documentary poem’, the director has said, ‘a statement of my artistic integrity and my uncompromising dedication to the streets’.
