February 26: Dorothea Lange: Grab a Hunk of Lightning
Dorthea Lang- Film Still Dorthea.jpg
Grab A Hunk of Lightning is a 110-minute film narrated and directed by Dorothea Lange’s granddaughter, award-winning filmmaker Dyanna Taylor.

Explore, through her granddaughter’s eyes, the life story of Dorothea Lange, the photographer who captured the iconic image “Migrant Mother.” Never-seen-before photos, film footage, interviews, family memories, and journals reveal the artist who challenged America to know itself.
Lange’s enduring images document five turbulent decades of American history, including the Great Depression, the Dust Bowl, World War II Japanese American Internment camps, and early environmentalism.

“This film is generous where it counts most — hundreds of those photos, not a single one wasted here ….“BOTTOM LINE, Beautifully done…this is a long love letter.” - Newsday

American Made Movie is a documentary film Directed and Produced by Vincent Vittorio and Assistant Director Christopher Harvey.

American Made Movie
is a documentary film examining the factors contributing to the decline of the American manufacturing workforce and the integral role consumerism may play in getting the economy back on track. The movie looks back on the glory days of U.S. manufacturing when there was a more balanced relationship between the goods produced and the goods consumed. The film also illustrates the how the impact of technology and globalization has transformed the competitive landscape for companies doing business in America, as well as overseas.

“This message is so important to the country, everyone in America should see this movie.”- Brian Higgins (D) New York, U.S. Congress

April 8: Althea
Althea Gibson with Millicent Miller.jpg
Althea is a documentary directed by Rex Miller.

A look at the genesis, the career and the legacy of Althea Gibson, often called "the Jackie Robinson of Tennis."  Gibson’s life and achievements transcend sports. Her roots as a sharecropper’s daughter, her family’s migration north to Harlem in the 30’s, mentoring from Sugar Ray Robinson, David Dinkins and others and fame that thrust her unwillingly into the glare of the early Civil Rights movement, all bring her story into the much broader realm of African-American History.

"
This was my mom's moment of tennis glory, a story I heard many (many, many, many!!!) times and lead me to take a look at the details of Althea's life, which I found more and more compelling as I?peeled back the layers, which just kept coming.” - Rex Miller, Director/Cinematographer

Visit Althea for more information or to view the trailer.


The 2015-2016 Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers is a program of South Arts. Southern Circuit screenings are funded in part by a grant from South Arts in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts.
