Rated NR: _
Directed by: Jon Sesrie Goff
A meditative examination, After Sherman is a story about inheritance and the tension that defines our collective American (and especially Black) history. The director’s personal exploration of coastal South Carolina as a site of pride and racial trauma through Gullah cultural retention (the particular plantation enslavements of the lower Atlantic Coast) and land preservation, is interrupted by the tragic shootings at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC.
