Claudia Lacy visits the grave of her son, Lennon Lacy

In her film ALWAYS IN SEASON, director Jacqueline Olive investigates a modern-day lynching, and she explores where that story intersects with America’s appalling history of racial violence against African-Americans.

Lynching is a dark stain on America’s historical conscience, but what if it isn’t entirely behind us? What if lynching were happening today? When 17-year-old Lennox Lacy was found hanging from a swing set in a North Carolina town in 2014, police quickly ruled his death a suicide. His mother says her son was lynched. In the documentary Always in Season, filmmaker Jacqueline Olive investigates Lacy’s story and explores where it intersects with the stories of other communities scarred by lynching.

Jacqueline Olive directed, wrote and produced the film Always In Season, which is in the U.S. Documentary Competition at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
