In his film Hale County This Morning, This Evening, director RaMell Ross abandons the traditional documentary form for a kind of lyrical portraiture, weaving together images and scenes from the lives of two young men in modern Alabama. It’s a documentary, but it’s also a visual poem about the historical South and the people who call it home. The film is nominated for an Academy Award, so we're taking the opportunity to rebroadcast our conversation with Ross. (Rebroadcast)

Hale County This Morning, This Evening aired last month on PBS' Independent Lens. You can stream it online on their website, pbs.org

We spoke with RaMell Ross last year as part of our Through the Lens series, our partnership with Utah Film Center.
