Dazzling and sun-drenched, ‘Hale County This Morning, This Evening’ is an innovative, impressionistic portrait of contemporary life in Hale County, Alabama.
Constructed from a series of fleeting, quotidian moments – church services, basketball practice and family gatherings – RaMell Ross’ careful, considered project was filmed over five years.
Taken as a whole, the film serves as an urgent and current political critique, questioning issues of representation and stereotype prevalent in images of Black America, and investigating the reproduction of blackness via film and photography.
Ross delivers of the most important works of non-fiction filmmaking of the year.
This event forms part of Reel Lives, a programme of discussions, screenings, performances, interactive activities and more presented by the Screen School at London College of Communication.
