The Alliance for Media Arts + Culture kicks off its second Monday Movies film series with one of the most acclaimed documentaries of 2018, the Oscar-nominated Hale County This Morning, This Evening. The monthly screenings are dedicated to “true stories with bold visions,” and this story of two black teenagers in small-town Alabama fits the bill. Filmmaker RaMell Ross followed his two subjects for five years, the process capturing the life of a town as well as the two friends. This season’s Monday Movies films shine a light on diverse communities across the United States, from the rural poor in Kentucky to Native American rock bands to black roller-skating culture, and each film is followed by a discussion or panel on the topic.
