aka Sud First screened in May 2020
Director: Chantal Akerman. Documentary about Jasper, Texas, in the wake of the lethal, racist hate crime against James Byrd, Jr. Twitter Capsule:
Snapshot of a Texas town in the wake of antiblack violence. More elegant in form than rich with insight, but a valuable record.
Akerman's camera remains unblinking, her edits their refusal to rush. Lesser yield than in other projects, but thoughtful POV and points of focus.
