In the world of independent film, director Julie Dash is drawing a strong following as a fresh and innovative voice. Her ambitious "Daughters of the Dust"--set on the Sea Islands off the South Carolina coast in the early 1900s--earned top honors for its lush cinematography at this year's Sundance Film Festival. But Dash can't even get a Hollywood agent. In August, friends sponsored a screening of the film on Sony Pictures' Culver City lot--hoping for a turnout of influential insiders.

Contrary to reports from the first time out, the cast now seems to be a tribe as much as a motley bunch of actors.

Tre and his teen-age friends are obsessed with sex, constantly deceiving their parents and still puzzling over an uncertain future.
