Martine Syms is a Los Angeles-based artist whose work examines representations of blackness and its relationship to narrative, vernacular, feminist thought, and radical traditions. Her new feature-length film, Incense, Sweaters & Ice, is a powerful exploration of the underlying oppressive racial structures in the United States, and their origins. Interweaving biographical narratives with fiction, this multi-location narrative follows routes of the 20th-century Great Migration of African-Americans from the rural South to the Northeast, Midwest and West. 

Presented as a co-production between LUX Scotland and Tramway for Glasgow Film Festival.
