Storyline

In the winter of 2002, over 300 bodies were discovered strewn about the property of the Tri-State Crematory in Noble, GA, in various stages of decay. "Sahkanaga" imagines this event from the perspective of a teenager who discovers the first body. Filmed on location in Walker County, GA, with a cast of non-professional actors, some of whom had direct connections to the real-life scandal, "Sahkanaga" observes a tight-knit community on the brink of a terrible tragedy and their efforts to make sense of the unknowable.

Fabulous movie!
7 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate to see this movie at its world premiere at the Atlanta Film Festival. It was so good I went to see the second showing as well. It is not surprising that it won the audience award (and those of us who went twice were only allowed to vote once).

No spoilers here - it is a must see. Even the trailers do not do this movie justice.

Real events woven with real life, portrayed by a talented team, powerful story, magnificently directed, great soundtrack. Regardless if you are or are not familiar with the news story surrounding the event that this story is based upon, you will still wonder how it must have felt to those who were involved.

The relationships in this movie are so real the audience knew that the writer must have drawn upon his own experiences.

When can I see it again?
