OLD SOUTH

Total Run Time: 54:00
Director: Danielle Beverly
Country of Origin: USA
Ratings: None
Synopsis: Hope is 30 years old and fighting to save her historic African American neighborhood from encroachment by an elite white fraternity, one known to fly a Confederate flag and hold an annual antebellum parade. Since the post-racial glow of the election of Obama, and now in the aftermath of Ferguson, everyone’s talking about race. But is it really so easy to speak openly and honestly? Or to change? On one block in Athens GA two communities steeped in history - one black, one white - strive to keep their respective legacies relevant in a changing American South.  "Old South" provides, through a 3+ year unfolding story, a window into the underlying dynamics of race relations that influence so many American communities.
