Description

Beautifully layered and expressionistic, After Sherman is a story about inheritance and the tension that defines our collective American history, especially Black history. The filmmaker 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.

Following the screening on April 29, journalist and Founder of Black Femme Supremacy Film Festival Nia Hampton will lead an audience Q&A with director Jon-Sesrie Goff.
