Look Away, Look Away

Directors: Patrick O'Connor
Run Time: 89 minutes
"Look Away, Look Away displays the slow and painful process that finally leads to change. It also contrasts how thoughtful and methodical the people pushing for a new flag were in relationship to those who were emotionally nostalgic about the Confederacy, rallied -- some with weapons around Confederate statues and monuments and were no match for people who were using reason to try changing minds and, eventually, hearts." 
-Bob Bloom, The Film Yap

100 Years from Mississippi

Directors: Tarabu Betserai Kirkland
Run Time: 60 minutes
"[Ms. Kirkland is] the embodiment of the African-American experience of the 20th century, her life's long journey altered repeatedly by the racial violence and bigotry coursing through the United States. Lynchings, riots, the Ku Klux Klan -- she survived it all, and spent her centenarian years working to ensure that these realities never slipped from collective memory."
-Dan Barry, New York Times

After Parkland

Directors: Emily Taguchi & Jake Lefferman
Run Time: 92 minutes
"After Parkland is not easy to watch, and certain choices (of images, of music) could be construed as calculated. But the movie succeeds where it counts: showing the reverberations of violence long after most cameras left." 
-Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times.

Tuesday, November 5, 2019


Directors: Valerie Red-Horse Mohl
Run Time: 57 minutes
“Crafted from archival footage and live interviews with Mankiller’s political colleagues, friends, and family, it’s a supremely moving story, and one that provides a telling snapshot of American social history during the last half century.”
-Eve Macsweeny, Vogue.

The Sentence

Directors: Rudy Valdez
Run Time: 86 minutes
“The Sentence finds truth in the old wisdom that the loved ones of the imprisoned are in prison, too.”
-K. Austin Collins, Vanity Fair.
