New Film on Race, Community and Gentrification

Amy Aquilino's picture

Hi All,


I am attaching some information about a new film from Women Make Movies that might be of interest to you:



OLD SOUTH, through a quiet unfolding story, provides a window into the underlying dynamics of race relations that influence so many American communities. In Athens, Georgia, a college fraternity traditionally known to fly the confederate flag moves to a historically black neighborhood and establishes their presence by staging an antebellum style parade. Through the perspective of local resident Hope, OLD SOUTH follows the neighborhood struggle over three years, while both communities fight to preserve their historical legacies against an ever evolving cultural backdrop in the South.


Please feel free to contact me with any questions, I am always happy to accept requests for reviewing the film in an appropriate journal.


Thanks for supporting independent women filmmakers!
