This documentary feature film connects the lingering impact of more than a century of lynching African Americans to contemporary racial violence in the US with the case of Lennon Lacy, a Black teen found hanging from a swing set in Bladenboro, North Carolina, in 2014. Lennon’s case is given context with the stories of people in other communities facing historic lynchings, like the group of reenactors who dramatize a 1946 quadruple lynching in Monroe, Georgia, to ensure the victims are never forgotten. One of the reenactors is a daughter of a former Ku Klux Klan leader who recounts life as “a child of the Klan.” In a prevailing culture of silence and denial about lynching terrorism that bleeds from the past into the present, Always in Season questions what it will take to finally bring about a movement for justice and reconciliation.
