Always in Season | Freep Film Fest
(USA/2019—directed by Jacqueline Olive)
Always in Season explores the lingering impact of more than a century of lynching African Americans and connects this form of historic racial terrorism to racial violence today. The film centers on the case of Lennon Lacy, an African American teen who was found hanging from a swing set in Bladenboro, North Carolina, in 2014. Officials quickly ruled Lennon’s death a suicide, but his mother, Claudia, believes Lennon was lynched and moves from paralyzing grief to leading the fight for justice for her son. Michigan premiere.
