Event Originally produced by Grasshopper Film in 2017.
Summary "In 1946, my great-grandfather murdered a black man named Bill Spann and got away with it." So begins Travis Wilkerson's critically-acclaimed, immensely powerful documentary, which takes us on a journey through the American South to uncover the truth behind a horrific incident and the societal mores that allowed it to happen. Acting as guide and narrator, Wilkerson begins in Dothan, Alabama, where he interviews civil rights activist Ed Vaughn, as well as local residents, and his own family members. His questioning soon leads to uncomfortable confrontations from both residents in town and his own family, along with real threats of violence. Haunting 8mm home movies reveal further buried secrets, including the possibility of another crime. Official Selection at the **Sundance Film Festival**. "*An urgent, often corrosive look at America's past and present through the prism of family, patriarchy, white supremacy and black resistance.*" - Manohla Dargis, ***The New York Times***
