When 17-year-old Lennon Lacy is found hanging from a swing set in rural North Carolina in 2014, his mother’s search for justice and reconciliation begins while the trauma of more than a century of lynching African Americans bleeds into the present.
We got to chat with Jacqueline Olive about the haunting revaluation documentary, ALWAYS IN SEASON.
A documentary that will seep into your soul with its ability to showcase the haunting realities of America’s long history of lynching of African-Americans. Jacqueline Olive has given us one of the most profound and honest documentaries of the 21st century. She was kind enough to chat with me about the amazing journey the doc has gone on, the powerful responses to the movie, and where the film goes from here.
Jacqueline Olive’s debut documentary, Always in Season, is one of the films showcased at this weekend’s Cinematter: NY Social Justice Film Festival.
The film will be screened at the JCC in Harlem this Sunday at 4:30pm with a Q/A following the film.
