Eyes on the Prize: Hallowed Ground
Matt Roush says...
Not so much a continuation or sequel to Henry Hampton’s seminal 1987 civil-rights documentary for PBS, filmmaker Sophia Nahli Allison’s film is more of an evocative and visually literate meditation of themes of Black liberation. Hallowed Ground, described as “a portal through time,” uses poetry, dance and imagery to convey both ancestral memories and more contemporary struggles for women and the LGBTQ community. (The original Eyes on the Prize series is available for streaming on HBO Max.)
