GLIDE is proud to be co-presenting Always in Season, a powerful new documentary by filmmaker Jacqueline Olive (who documented GLIDE’s pilgrimage to Alabama in 2018), at the 2019 San Francisco International Film Festival.
Juxtaposing an investigation of the recent mysterious death of teenager Lennon Lacy, found hanging from a swing set in North Carolina, against the little-known ritual of present-day lynching reenactments, first-time feature director Jacqueline Olive presents harrowing proof of how little has changed in terms of justice and jeopardy for Black men and women. Narrated by Danny Glover and featuring Osei Essed’s haunting score, Always in Season is a forceful, unforgettable investigative documentary that shatters the notion that racial violence is a thing of the past.
Director Jacqueline Olive is expected to attend all screenings.
