The U.S. Embassy Singapore invites FCA members to a free virtual screening of the Oscar nominated documentary film "Hale County This Morning, This Evening.”

An inspired and intimate portrait of a place and its people, the film looks at the lives of 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. You are invited to experience their experiences, their everyday lives, their highs and lows, joys and sorrows. These moments combine to communicate the region’s deep culture and provide glimpses into the lives of this particular African American community.

In his directorial debut, award-winning photographer and director RaMell Ross offers a refreshingly direct approach to documentary that fills in the gaps between individual black male icons. "Hale County This Morning, This Evening" allows the viewer an emotive impression of the American South, trumpeting the beauty of life and consequences of the social construction of race, while simultaneously offering a testament to dreaming despite the odds. The film won the Special Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival in 2018, and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2019. Watch the film trailer here
