Composed of intimate and unencumbered moments of people in a community, this film is constructed in a form that allows the viewer an emotive impression of the Historic South - trumpeting the beauty of life and consequences of the social construction of race, while simultaneously a testament to dreaming.
This Is Not Really A Documentary. It's More Of A Series Of Video Blogs.
This documentary plays like a high school sociology project, made with an iPhone. I question what the subject was supposed to be - in other words, there seems to be little consistency throughout this series of video testimonials. I love documentaries - this is not a documentary. Skip this one.
