First screened in October 2016
Director: Margaret Byrne. Documentary about three teenaged black American men as well as their families and community members in a struggling county in rural North Carolina. Screenplay: Margaret Byrne and Leslie Simmer. Twitter Capsule:
Personal and systemic travails of poor black teens and their rural community, conveyed with candor and compassion.
This should have been the movie or at least the documentary of the year. A tender but forceful profile of people and places perpetually ignored.
