DID YOU WONDER WHO FIRED THE GUN?
Notable screenings: Sundance, True/False, Locarno, New York Film Festival “Sixty-two Films That Shaped the Art of Documentary Filmmaking,” The New Yorker “A far more unsettling family portrait can be found in another Spotlight selection: “Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun?” Directed by the resolutely independent American filmmaker Travis Wilkerson, this nonfiction movie recounts the 1946 murder of a black man by one of his white relatives. Serving as the movie’s narrator — and making the expressive most of his deep, darkly insinuating sepulchral voice — Mr. Wilkerson sifts through the personal and the political, travels down eerily lonely Alabama byways and deep into anguished history. The result is an urgent, often corrosive look at America’s past and present through the prism of family, patriarchy, white supremacy and black resistance.” NYTimes
