BEST OF FEST: HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING, THIS EVENING

March 1 – 7
BEST OF FEST: HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING, THIS EVENING

Nominated for Best Documentary at the 91st Academy Awards, Hale County This Morning, This Evening looks at the lives of Daniel Collins and Quincy Bryant, two young African American men from rural Hale County, Alabama, over the course of five years. Collins attends college in search of opportunity while Bryant becomes a father to an energetic son in an open-ended, poetic form that privileges the patiently observed interstices of their lives. The audience is invited to experience the mundane and monumental, birth and death, the quotidian and the sublime. These moments combine to communicate the region’s deep culture and provide glimpses of the complex ways the African American community’s collective image is integrated into America’s visual imagination.
Dir: RaMell Ross / 2018 / US / 76 min

“It’s not every day that you witness a new cinematic language being born, but watching RaMell Ross’s evocatively titled documentary Hale County, This Morning, This Evening qualifies.” – Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice

“There is something visionary in this film.” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“Ross has given us something valuable: a portrait of a small, overlooked section of America, presented without judgment.” – Abbey Bender, Mubi
