A dreamy, lyrical documentary following two young black men and their families over the course of five years, Hale County offers an emotive impression of rural Alabama and an intimate portrait of its people. Photographer RaMell Ross’s debut film is “a quietly radical challenge to assumptions about race, class, and the aesthetics of filmmaking” (New York Times). (2018, dir. RaMell Ross, 76 min.)

A Q&A with director RaMell Ross follows.
