Two great films "Prom Night in Mississippi" and "The Last White Night"
Santa Fe – It’s a rare opportunity to be invited to see two award-winning documentaries free of charge and with free refreshments, but that’s exactly what is being offered in March. Both films will be shown at El Museo Cultural, 555 Camino de la Familia (in the Railyard between W. Manhatten and Paseo de Peralta), Santa Fe. Director, Paul Saltzman, will speak at both films. Trailers for films at: movingbeyondprejudice.com
On Friday, March 13, 7pm, PROM NIGHT IN MISSISSIPPI.
Academy Award–winning actor Morgan Freeman lives in Charleston, Mississippi. In 1997, he offered to pay for the Senior Prom at Charleston’s one high school under the condition that the prom had to be racially integrated. His offer was ignored. In 2008, Freeman offered again. This time the school board accepted, and history was made. Charleston High had its first-ever integrated prom—in 2008. Until then, blacks and whites had had separate proms even though their classrooms have been integrated for decades. Canadian filmmaker Paul Saltzman follows students, teachers, and parents in the lead-up to the big day. PROM NIGHT IN MISSISSIPPI captures a big moment in a small town, where hope finally blossoms in black, white, and a whole lot of taffeta.
On Saturday, March 14, 7:30pm, THE LAST WHITE KNIGHT
Paul Saltzman’s courageous film was inspired by an incident during the early 1960s when he journeyed to the Deep South as a civil rights worker to help with voter registration in Mississippi. One of the first days he was there, he was assaulted by a group of young men led by Byron “Delay” De La Beckwith, the son of the man convicted of killing civil rights activist Medgar Evers. Decades later, Saltzman returns to the south to meet with Beckwith and see what, if anything, has changed in the New South. He interviews a wide variety of people from Harry Belafonte, the celebrated singer and civil rights activist, who recounts his own experiences during the voter registration drive; actor Morgan Freeman (who was born, and now lives, in Mississippi); a top FBI official, who discuss the close links between the police and the Klan during the period; to a group of kids from different races who are best friends; and (chillingly) a trio of dedicated, unregenerate Klansmen. Saltzman’s talks with Beckwith form the backbone of the film.
AWARDS:
  • PROM NIGHT IN MISSISSIPPI earned several Film Festival awards, including Audience Awards, and Sundance Film Festival Official Selection, 2009. The Wall Street Journal called it “True Magic.”
  • THE LAST WHITE KNIGHT has received more than 20 Film Festival Awards, including Napa Valley Film Festival Special Jury Prize for “The Most Thought Provoking Film,” and Crossroad Film Festival, Jackson, MS, for The Most Transformative Film Award Citation “Given to the film that has the ability to transform opinions, lives, and ultimately, history."
