Our Mockingbird

 

Birmingham, Alabama native and current Watertown resident Sandy Jaffe’s film follows students at two different high schools just outside of Birmingham—one black, one white—who collaborate on a life-changing theatrical version of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird. Through interviews with such individuals as Mary Badham and Phillip Alford (who played Scout and Jem, respectively, in the original film version), Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree, Pulitzer Prize winning writers and journalists Diane McWhorter and Rick Bragg, Congressman John Lewis, judges, teachers, and students, the film illustrates how this story about racial injustice in small town Alabama can be a lens for looking at past and current issues of race, class, gender, and justice.

 

Recommended for teens and adults ($8).
