Description:

Hale County This Morning, This Evening
(RaMell Ross, 2018, USA, DCP, 76 min.)

This insightful, moving and visually breathtaking documentary offers a glimpse into the emotional geography of African American lives in the South. Director RaMell Ross, an accomplished photographer and writer, was coaching youths in rural Alabama when he met Daniel and Quincey, two young men whose diverging paths into adulthood provide the inspiration for Hale County. From 2012 to 2017, Ross followed their experiences, and those of the community surrounding them, with an eye attuned to the everyday rhythms and quiet revelations of day-to-day existence. Edited with a lyrical, rather than a narrative sensibility, Hale County This Morning, This Evening has been celebrated as a creative breakthrough in nonfiction filmmaking, garnering major awards at Sundance and the Full Frame Film Festival for its sensitive, unconventional representations of working class Black life.
