Hale County This Morning, This Evening
First screened in November 2018
Director: RaMell Ross. Documentary surveying several years in the life of some African American residents of Hale County in western Alabama. Screenplay: RaMell Ross and Maya Krinsky. Twitter Capsule:
Immersive slice of rural Alabama. Evocative images, moods, and sounds. Adventurous montage.
As rare and accomplished for what it avoids ("rustic" clichés, ethnographic voyeurism, naïve realism) as for its singular intimacy and style.
