ACADEMY AWARD NOMINEE: BEST DOCUMENTARY!

WINNER! SPECIAL JURY PRIZE –Sundance Film Festival

A poetic documentary with a gift for making enrapturing imagery out of what sound like ordinary, everyday events.

Because these ordinary moments come from the everyday lives of African Americans in the deep South state of Alabama — a reality movies rarely explore — the film’s accomplishments are even more noteworthy. Very much a personal project for filmmaker RaMell Ross, whose credit line reads “directed, filmed, edited and written by,” “Hale County” was a success at the Sundance Film Festival, winning a special jury prize for creative vision.

The film’s 76 minutes were painstakingly culled from over a five-year period. The focus of the film is nominally on two young men who became friends of Ross’ and whose paths are not the same. Though words can describe what “Hale County” shows, they really can’t convey how involving this visual symphony is. As much as anything else, the film is a tribute to the mystical power of the moving image, and to Ross’ keen and empathetic eye. --L.A. Times
