DID YOU WONDER WHO FIRED THE GUN?

United States | 2017 | Travis Wilkerson

DID YOU WONDER WHO FIRED THE GUN?

In 1946, Alabama Klansman S.E. Branch murdered unarmed black man Bill Spann and got away with it. 70 years later, Branch’s great-grandson, filmmaker Travis Wilkerson, attempts to uncover the truth behind this horrific incident and the society that allowed it to happen. Acting as both narrator and guide, Wilkerson takes us on a journey through the American South, touching on the Recy Tayor case, To Kill a Mockingbird, and the music of Janelle Monáe and Phil Ochs while spinning a chilling tale about his own family’s history. “An overwhelming experience.” –The New Yorker. “A scorching and rigorous essay on memory and accountability.” –NY Times. “It’s hard not to get shivers up your spine—from fear, from anger, and from the beauty of Wilkerson’s filmmaking.” –Village Voice. DCP. 90 min.
