Director Jacqueline Olive Attending 4/16

North Carolina. 2014. Claudia Lacy's beloved 17-year old son, Lennon, is found hanging from a swing set in rural Bladenboro. While officials deem Lennon's death a suicide, Claudia and her surrounding community are convinced Lennon was murdered, and she embarks on her own search for justice under the weight of the still present wounds of centuries of lynchings of African Americans. Blending a journalist approach with an unflinching examination of the history of lynching in America, director Jacqueline Olive has created a moving piece of documentary cinema that refuses to forget or obscure the past. Her interviews with the Lacy family and surrounding community are both haunting and revealing, as all are presented with the question of why Lennon, an all-star athlete who was found dead right before he was to play in his team's big game, would commit suicide.

"Archival materials offer details of the gruesome past, and interviews and present-day reporting are nicely counterbalanced by moments of visual poetry that capture the lyrical aspects of rural Southern life — even as we suss out its less-than-sweet side" - Variety
