Themes of Acceptance and Justice Make This Sundance Film a Must-See on September 4th

Come explore American history during a riveting documentary presentation! On Wednesday, September 4th, F.M. Kirby Center will present Always in Season, produced and directed by Jacqueline Olive. See this Sundance Film Festival selection next week!

Always in Season follows Claudia Lacy as she moves from paralyzing grief to leading the fight for justice for her son. When 17-year-old Lennon Lacy is found deceased, his mother’s search for justice and reconciliation begins.

Directed, produced, and written by Jacqueline Olive, the documentary explores the lingering impact of more than a century of violence and connects it to today. As the film unfolds, Lennon’s case, and the suspicions surrounding it intersect with stories of other communities committed to breaking the silence of their own recent histories and leading the way to justice.

Always in Season was a 2019 Sundance Award winner in the U.S. Documentary Competition. The film received the Special Jury Award for Moral Urgency. Sundance Institute is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the discovery and development of independent artists and audiences. Through its programs, the Institute seeks to discover, support, and inspire independent film, media, and theatre artists from the United States and around the world, and to introduce audiences to their new work.
