Abstract:

Akerman traveled to the American South to make a film inspired by authors William Faulkner and James Baldwin, but she transformed her project after the horrific racist crime against James Byrd, Jr. was committed during her stay.

Akerman documents the community's reaction to the hate crime before retracing the route of the murder. Includes interviews with residents--black and white--of Jasper, Texas where the events took place.
