THE OTHER SIDE OF SILENCE: THE UNTOLD STORY OF RUBY McCOLLUM
Claudia Hunter Johnson (USA, 2010)  80 minutes.  English. Genre: documentary.

A wealthy black woman. Her abusive white doctor. The diagnosis was murder.

This feature documentary chronicles Pulitzer Prize Nominee Claudia Hunter Johnson's 19-year quest to unravel a crazy quilt of corruption, hatred, violence and injustice.

Following a brief intermission after the screening and Filmmkaer Talkback for The Other Side of Silence, we present two short films dealing with community, health and wellness:

MISS DEVINE
FACES OF SICKLE CELL
THE WAY HOME

Miss Devine directed byThe Rauch Brothers. (USA, 2010) English. Genre: animated narrative.  General audience.
Cousins James Ransom and Cherie Johnson recall their fearsome Sunday school teacher, Miss Lizzie Devine, the only woman who had more power than their grandmother. Set in the small Florida town of the cousins' memories, this animation resounds with the joy of sharing stories with family.




Faces of Sickle Cell by Allum Ross Ndiaye  (USA, 2012)  12 minutes. English.  Genre: documentary.  General audience. Local filmmaker present for Filmmaker Talkback.
This work sheds light on the everyday reality of people living with sickle cell disease, including the parents of a young child.

The Way Home: Returning to the National Parks  by Amy Marquis and Sarah Menzies (USA, 2011) 9 minutes, 22 seconds.  English.  Genre: documentary.  General audience.
Too often, African Americans are among those least likely to have a wilderness experience. But when Oprah camped in Yosemite National Park in 2010, she inspired many to reconnect with nature. Filmmakers Amy Marquis and Sara Menzies embedded themselves with the "Amazing Grace 50+ Club," church club from LA that was determined to see Ranger Shelton Johnson's Buffalo Soldier performance in Yosemite, just as Oprah had.  Ms. Rita Cooper, former Head of  Washington State Parks, will make brief remarks.
