Beautifully layered, the multiple award-winning new documentary “After Sherman” is a story about inheritance and the tension that defines our collective American history, especially Black history.

Filmmaker Jon Sesrie Goff follows his father, a minister, in the aftermath of a mass shooting at his church in Charleston, South Carolina to understand how communities of descendants of enslaved Africans use their unique faith as a form of survival as they continue to fight for America to live up to its many unfulfilled promises to Black Americans.

"A Piercing Documentary … nourishes both the spirit and soul." — IndieWire

"Captivating. Ambitiously framed.” — The Hollywood Reporter

"Goff effectively bottles the energy generated when history collides with memory and lets it resound in his feature to stirring effect.” — The Playlist
