Sonoma Film Institute presents, Hale County This Morning, This Evening

“The American stranger knows Blackness as a fact—even though it is fiction,’ says writer-director RaMell Ross. For his visionary and political debut feature, which premiered to great acclaim at Sundance in 2018, Ross spent five years intimately observing African American families living in Hale County, Alabama. It’s a region made unforgettable by Walker Evans and James Agee’s landmark 1941 photographic essay Let Us Now Praise Famous Men, which documented the impoverished lives of white sharecropper families in Alabama’s Dust Bowl during the Great Depression. Ross’s poetic return to this place shows changed demographics, and depicts people resilient in the face of adversity and invisibility. HALE COUNTY THIS MORNING, THIS EVENING introduces a distinct and powerful new voice in American filmmaking.” – New Directors/New Films (2018, 76 min.)  Free Admission

Director RaMell Ross will appear to introduce the film and for Q&A after this (Friday) screening.
