Photographer-turned-filmmaker RaMell Ross has crafted an innovative, impressionistic portrait of contemporary life in Hale County, Alabama, offering a new way of seeing and experiencing the heat and the hearts of people in the Black Belt region of the USA. Captured over five years, the film is not so much a narrative as a series of vignettes and moments that hold within them urgent questions about stereotypes and representations of black America.
