JACQUELINE OLIVE | ALWAYS IN SEASON

For more than a century, tens of thousands of men, women, and children attended lynchings of more than five thousand African Americans that often included hours of torture, mutilation, and photography. Lynching was akin to the sport of hunting, and blacks were "always in season." Always in Season is the first feature-length documentary to explore the lingering impact of lynching by following recent grassroots efforts of relatives of the perpetrators and victims in four communities seeking to acknowledge the victims, repair the damage, and reconcile--all in the midst of police shootings, church burnings, and heated national debate about the value of black lives.
