What We Need
Matteo and I have been collaborating on this amazing story for almost a year. With the help of historians, archivists, and the energy and expertise of the people working with The Lynching Sites Project of Memphis, we have very nearly completed research on historical background of this tragedy. We have scouted and filmed almost all the major locations associated with this lynching, and have identified and located descendants of the families and individuals involved in the lynching and are now in the process of interviewing those willing to talk.
Of course we have conducted multiple interviews with Charlie Morris and Sylvester Lewis.
So a good portion of your donations will go to helping us finish filming the story, to complete the final production and postproduction details, and to fund distribution of the film to archives, schools as well as to submit it to various film competitions and festivals.
