Named one of the best films of the year by the New York Times (“pure cinematic poetry”), the year’s critical darling is this lyrical documentary by RaMell Ross. Hale County follows Daniel and Quincy, two young African-American men from rural Alabama. It observes the moments of their lives, both intimate and grand, as they grow into maturity. The result is an impressionistic portrait of the Deep South and its people, infused with visual splendor and quiet beauty, that lingers in the mind long after the credits roll.
runtime: 76m format: DCP
