Join us for a FREE Variety Gotham Week Screening of SILVER DOLLAR ROAD, followed by a live Q&A with writer/director Raoul Peck!
From Academy-Award Nominee Raoul Peck, Silver Dollar Road follows the story of the Reels family as told by the matriarch Mamie Reels Ellison and her niece Kim Renee Duhon, two fierce women defending their rights and fighting to protect their ancestor's land and their brothers and uncles Melvin and Licurtis, who were incarcerated for eight years for refusing to leave their homes -- becoming two of the longest serving inmates for civil contempt in the country.
This documentary, based on the 2019 ProPublica article, highlights the ways the legal system is exploited to limit land ownership in the Black community and further contributes to the racial wealth gap.
