40th & State

16mm; writer, producer, director, cinematographer

In the wake of the brutal 1955 lynching of Emmett Till, an entire church is left to grieve. What happens when mourning becomes political and fighting becomes spiritual? 40th & State is an experimental requiem for lost Black life and exploration of the Pentecostal church.
