The Other Side of Silence, Comrade Sunshine, and Nigga on the Walk
THE OTHER SIDE OF SILENCE (Claudia Johnson, 79 min.)

The film follows Pulitzer Prize nominee Claudia Johnson's nineteen-year quest to penetrate the mysterious silence surrounding the story of Ruby McCollum, well-educated wife of numbers racketeer "Bolita" Sam and the richest African-American woman in Live Oak, Florida, convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to the electric chair for the 1952 murder of her white doctor and alleged lover, state-senator-elect LeRoy Adams.


NIGGA ON THE WALK - A STORY OF COMMITMENT (Darren Christianson, 7 min.)

George Keeling, a newly appointed black counselor at Tennessee State Penitentiary, known as 'The Walls,' is assigned to the maximum security unit, which houses several Ku Klux Klan inmates. Though Keeling is greeted with the most virulent, threatening and racist remarks imaginable, through perseverance, he manages to win over the inmates, gaining their respect.

COMRADE SUNSHINE (Cameron Granadino, 20 min.)

Set in Baltimore, Comrade Sunshine focuses on the friendship between Dominique Stevenson, whose Friend of a Friend program helps men in prison through peer mentoring, and Wahid Shakur, a recently released 20-year-old now working with her to help build community. As Dominique attempts to guide him in making a smooth transition back into society while continuing to raise questions about the dire impacts of incarceration, Wahid faces the new challenge of life on parole.
