Event Description

"UNSPOKEN" is a powerful and insightful documentary feature film that explores the impact of racial division in a small southern town, particularly in relation to the 1946 Moore Ford lynching. Through the iPhone camera lens of resident Stephanie Calabrese, the film uncovers buried truths and sheds light on the secrecy that still surrounds this tragic event, as well as the ongoing impact of segregation, the Civil Rights Movement, and the integration of schools and society in Monroe, Georgia.

Sourced from 40 interviews with fellow residents and extensive research, "UNSPOKEN" offers a nuanced and complex understanding of the historical factors that have contributed to the racial divide in the town, as well as contemporary challenges that continue to perpetuate it. The film aims to inspire dialog focused on race relations, divisions and opportunities for reconciliation in towns across America.

UNSPOKEN was awarded the Audience Choice Award for Documentary Feature at the 2022 Macon Film Festival, the Special Jury Prize for Documentary Feature at the 2022 Rome International Film Festival, and Best Documentary at the 2023 Reedy Reels Film Festival. The film was an official selection of the 2022 Morehouse College Human Rights Film Festival, Chagrin Documentary Film Festival, and Portland Film Festival, and 2023 Cinema on the Bayou Festival.

Film runtime is 79 minutes followed by a Q-and-A with filmmaker Stephanie Calabrese.
