Behind the Scenes

A group of people, including filmmakers, stand in front of a man digging in the ground with a shovel
"I would be grateful if audiences saw themselves in my documentary rather than viewing the movie and the people in it as though their experiences and words don’t either represent or reflect who we are as Americans. And if audiences don’t immediately see themselves on the screen, or someone that they know (even if the circumstances are different), then it is my hope that audiences will be shocked, angered, surprised and ultimately inspired to be part of effecting change."
—Marco Williams, filmmaker
