Acts of Reparation
“Acts of Reparation” (fiscal sponsor: Alliance for Media Arts + Culture) is a feature documentary film that tells the story of grassroots efforts across the US that seek relational repair of the harms done by settler colonialism and slavery. In the film, filmmakers Selina Lewis Davidson and Macky Alston, friends and filmmaking partners for 25 years, Black and white, set out to explore the possibility for reparations in the United States. Together they discover and follow grassroots initiatives intended to heal the historic harm of slavery and Native American genocide—all the while asking each other tough questions about what is possible—in families, communities, and our nation.
