"Witness a new cinematic language being born" (Village Voice) in this evocative and impressionistic portrait of life in rural Hale County, AL. We follow their day-to-day existence in this area populated mostly by Black, working-class families, as this collection of seemingly innocuous moments begin to form a jaw-dropping mosaic of life in the American South. Gorgeous photography supports this stunning work of visual poetry, a quietly profound picture that presents an entirely new way of seeing Black men and women apart from film's constrictive and conventional history of representation.
