Join Director Danielle Beverly at the SF DocFest screenings of her documentary "Old South".

DESCRIPTION: On one block in Athens GA, two communities steeped in history – one black, one white – strive to keep their respective legacies relevant in a changing American South.

-------------------------------------------------------------
Synopsis:

Hope is 30 years old and fighting to save her historic African American neighborhood from encroachment by an elite white college fraternity, one known to fly a confederate flag and hold an annual antebellum parade.

Since the post-racial glow of the election of Obama, and now in the aftermath of Ferguson and Baltimore, everyone’s talking about race. But is it really so easy to speak openly and honestly? Or to change?

Through a quiet unfolding 3 year story, "OLD SOUTH" provides a window into the underlying dynamics of race relations that influence not just the South, but many American communities. And ultimately inspires hope, reflection, and a crucial step forward.
