Paola di Florio's haunting documentary about Viola Liuzzo, a Detroit civil rights worker murdered by the Ku Klux Klan in 1965 Alabama, adds to the case for ripping J. Edgar Hoover's name off the FBI building in Washington.
There is altogether too much footage of daughter Mary wallowing in her mother's martyrdom.
Paola di Florio's poignant documentary tells the freshly outraging story of Viola Liuzzo, a white woman who was killed while volunteering with the civil rights movement.
This doc recounting the tragic story of Viola Liuzzo, the only white woman killed during the civil rights struggle, doubles as a narrative of the nascent women's movement.
A serenely powerful, handcrafted film that navigates into a place Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once called 'the tangled discords of our nation.'
It is a film that should be required viewing by all citizens, especially students, if we hope not to repeat this awful chapter.
