Sandy Jaffe’s film follows students at two different high schools—one
black, one white—just outside of her native Birmingham, Alabama, who
collaborate on a life-changing theatrical version of Harper Lee’s
influential novel To Kill A Mockingbird. Through interviews with such
individuals as Mary Badham and Phillip Alford (who played Scout and Jem,
respectively, in the original film version), Harvard Law School
professor Charles Ogletree, Pulitzer Prize winning writers and
journalists Diane McWhorter and Rick Bragg, Congressman John Lewis,
judges, teachers, and students, the film illustrates how this story
about racial injustice in small town Alabama can be a lens for looking
at past and current issues of race, class, gender, and justice.
Recommended for teens and adults
