Song for Our People tells the inspiring story of a group of socially committed professional musical artists who come together one day to create a powerful new anthem to honor their African American ancestors, and to inspire the ongoing fight for social justice in America. Featuring renowned New York studio musicians, singers, a rapper, and a tap dancer, the film is a celebration and testament to the power of collective action to create both art and social change.

83 Days

Directed by Andrew Paul Howell (USA, 2018, 30 min.). Digital.

83 Days is the story of the youngest person in US history to be put to death by electric chair. In 1944, in the segregated southern town of Acolu, South Carolina, 14-year-old George Stinney Jr. fights for his life after being wrongly accused of the murder of two young white girls. What happens when the law is tainted by political pressure and racism, and when those in power struggle to challenge it? How long will it take for the truth to be told?

Also preceded by:

Murder in Mobile

Directed by Adam Fischer (USA, 2019, 23 min.). Digital.

In 1948, in Mobile, Alabama, a black man named Rayfield Davis was beaten to death by a white man who was not prosecuted. The crime was forgotten until 2012, when a Northeastern law student was assigned to investigate—culminating in a shocking conclusion. Murder in Mobile is a film about race, murder, and one family’s search for the truth 70 years later.
