Sen. Dalessandro to host screening of
documentary “The Long Shadow”
Film examines the roots of current racial tensions in America
STATE CAPITOL, PHOENIX – “Senator Andrea Dalessandro will host director Frances Causey for a screening of her documentary film “The Long Shadow” on Friday, October 27th in Senate Hearing Room 1. The film recounts the history of slavery and racism in America and explores how their effects still resonate in modern America.
Synopsis of “The Long Shadow”:
Of all the divisions in America, none is as insidious and tenacious as racism. In this powerful documentary, director Frances Causey investigates the roots of our current racial conflicts. Causey and Long Shadow producer Sally Holst, both daughters of the South, were raised with a romanticized vision of America’s past. Haunted by the truth of slavery’s legacy in their own histories, they passionately seek the hidden truth and the untold stories that reveal how the sins of yesterday feed modern prejudice, which burns undiminished despite our seeming progress.
This event is open to the public and media.
