“Trust me when I tell you that this isn't another white savior story. This is a white nightmare story."

Built on stray shots and archival loops, Wilkerson leads us on a multimedia trek into the dark basements of family histories and regretful legacies—as well as their present-day echoes. In 1946, S.E. Branch—Wilkerson’s great-grandfather—murdered Bill Spann, a black man, in Dothan, Alabama. Buried under years of silence, Wilkerson must play detective as he constructs the record from tattered primary sources, popular culture, and self-inquiry. 2017. 90 min.
