Hale County This Morning, This Evening

Hale County This Morning, This Evening
Documentary | 2018 | NR. 1hr 16min
CAST: Latrenda 'Boosie' Ash, Quincy Bryant, Daniel Collins DIRECTOR: RaMell Ross TUESDAY FILM SERIES | CO-PRESENTED BY THE TACOMA FILM FESTIVAL

In Hale County This Morning, This Evening, Ross offers an inspired and intimate portrait of a place and its people. The film presents 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, all of which combine to communicate the region's deep culture and glimpse the complex ways the African American community's collective image is integrated into America's visual imagination.

Reviews
As a record of African-American imagery, it's not just an evaluation of 'how we are seen,' it's also a corrective that replaces stereotype with visual poetry.
Odie Henderson, RogerEbert.com
Vividly sketches African-American lives on an Alabama trek that bypasses stereotypes and narrative conceit, proceeding directly to empathy.
Peter Howell, Toronto Star
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.
