12:00PM HIGH SCHOOL FILMMAKERS PROGRAM (120 min)

Special Presentation...The Flag

Tyler Parker | Director | Doc | 15 min | 2015 | NC

AIFF is pleased to feature a film from this year's Harvard College Film Festival as the opener for this year's High School Filmmakers Program.

In the summer of 2015, a gunman killed nine black parishioners in a Bible study at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC, blowing open the doors to conversations of race, rage, and reconciliation across the state. The Flag, made during the director's junior year of undergraduate studies, documents those conversations under the shadow of the Confederate Flag flying high in front of the South Carolina State Capitol Building in Columbia, SC.
