Strong Island - Something Somewhere Film Festival

Documentary

Presented by the Something Somewhere Film Festival

Something Somewhere Film Festival presents the Academy Award nominated and award winning STRONG ISLAND in a special one off screening at Araluen Arts Centre. 

Strong Island chronicles the arc of a family across history, geography and tragedy - from the racial segregation of the Jim Crow South to the promise of New York City; from the presumed safety of middle class suburbs, to the maelstrom of an unexpected, violent death. It is the story of the Ford family: Barbara Dunmore, William Ford and their three children and how their lives were shaped by the enduring shadow of race in America. A deeply intimate and meditative film, Strong Island asks what one can do when the grief of loss is entwined with historical injustice, and how one grapples with the complicity of silence, which can bind a family in an imitation of life, and a nation with a false sense of justice.
