Movie Info

In Hale County This Morning, This Evening, Ross offers an inspired and intimate portrait of a place and its people. The film presents Daniel Collins and Quincy Bryant, two young African American men from rural Hale County, Alabama, over the course of five years. Collins attends college in search of opportunity while Bryant becomes a father to an energetic son in an open-ended, poetic form that privileges the patiently observed interstices of their lives. The audience is invited to experience the mundane and monumental, birth and death, the quotidian and the sublime, all of which combine to communicate the region's deep culture and glimpse the complex ways the African American community's collective image is integrated into America's visual imagination.

Critic Reviews for Hale County This Morning, This Evening

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (6)

As a record of African-American imagery, it's not just an evaluation of 'how we are seen,' it's also a corrective that replaces stereotype with visual poetry.

September 14, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

Ross's camera captures the banal, the tragic and the triumphant alike, never lingering on any one moment for too long, and using a dreamy editing technique that doesn't always spell out its associations for us.

Top Critic

Mr. Ross retains a patient and focused eye. His camera's gaze has a quality of reserve, one that insistently imparts respect to his subjects.

September 13, 2018 | Full Review…

If Ross had embraced anything like a narrative line, would it have taken away from the elemental imagery of his brief, unconventional film?

September 12, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

It's not every day that you witness a new cinematic language being born, but watching RaMell Ross's evocatively titled documentary Hale County, This Morning, This Evening qualifies.

January 22, 2018 | Full Review…

This is Ross's method throughout Hale County-to capture and then assemble moments that seem as if they were all witnessed on-the-fly as opposed to contrived for effect, and let the finished product stand as both tapestry and testament.
