The SXSW 2021 Audience Award winner (Documentary Spotlight), Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America, will now be available for viewing next at the 2021 Hot Docs Canadian International Film Festival.
About Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America – ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jeffery Robinson’s groundbreaking talk on the history of U.S. anti-Black racism is interwoven with archival footage, interviews, and Robinson’s story, exploring the enduring legacy of white supremacy and our collective responsibility to overcome it.
Directed by Emily Kunstler & Sarah Kunstler (William Kunstler: Disturbing the Universe, Sundance ’09, POV/PBS), the film is a powerful reminder of the work we still need to do to overcome the history of racism in this country. As Robinson states in the film, “it will never get easier to have an honest discussion about race in America than it is right now…because if we wait, it is only going to get harder”. Emily Kunstler (Producer/Director/Editor) and Sarah Kunstler (Producer/Director) are the founders of Off Center Media, a documentary production company dedicated to racial justice and social change.
Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America is produced by Jeffery Robinson, Emily Kunstler, Sarah Kunstler & Vanessa Hope; written by Jeffery Robinson and Executive Produced by Ted Hope.
