Doc/Nights presents the best new documentary cinema with special introductions, Q&As and panel discussions.

One of the most essential documentary releases of the year, RaMell Ross's HALE COUNTY paints an inspired, intimate and lyrical portrait of African American lives in Hale County, Alabama.

Finding beauty and poetry in the everyday, the film is a hypnotic and visually astounding love letter to a community, and an exploration of the complex social construction of race in America.

We're incredibly excited that Sheffield's first ever Poet Laureate, the hip-hop artist OTIS MENSAH, will introduce the screening and perform some of his spoken word pieces after the film.
