Abstract:

On April 4th, 1968, civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was shot and killed in Memphis, Tennessee. As news of his assassination spread, American cities were engulfed in chaos and fear. Urban areas erupted in riots and fires burned out of control. Dozens of people were killed. Meanwhile, presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy was in Indianapolis, where he was scheduled to make a campaign appearance in an African-American neighborhood. Kennedy wanted to deliver the news to the people. But local police warned him, they won't be able to provide protection if the people rioted. Kennedy wrote out some brief notes and then courageously gave a moving plea for peace and reconciliation on the back of a truck. It would eventually be regarded as one of the great political speeches of the twentieth century. With digitally restored news footage and original music by Grammy Award-winning composer John Colby, A Ripple of Hopedraws on interviews with Kennedy aides and associates, as well as "everyday people" who were in the crowd that night, to tell the story of an inspiring moment in American history. Harvest Moon Film Festival - Winner, Best Documentary; Heartland Film Festival - Winner, Audience Choice Award; Indianapolis International Film Festival - Winner, Hoosier Lens Award.
