Always In Season

“Infuriating and eye-opening… a portrait of righteous rage and determination.”
Keith Uhlich, The Hollywood Reporter


“The film brings lynching out from its hiding place in history books and into the light of the 21st century… offers an engrossing mix of history, investigation and activism.”
Dennis Harvey, Variety


“Haunting, difficult and necessary, a depiction of an America that we think of as relegated to the past but that continues to encroach on the present.”
Donna K, Filmmaker Magazine


“Poetic, delicate yet demanding, profoundly astute, and tightly paced throughout.”
Les Roka, The Utah Review


“Powerful… A nuanced, layered reminder of how far we still have to go to correct the injustices of this country’s past and present.”
Brian Tallerico,


When 17-year-old Lennon Lacy is found hanging from a swing set in rural North Carolina in 2014, his mother’s search for justice and reconciliation begins as the trauma of more than a century of lynching African Americans bleeds into the present. Always in Season made its world premiere at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival where it won a Special Jury Prize for Moral Urgency. The film will air on PBS’ Independent Lens in February 2020. Always in Season is directed by Jackie Olive and produced by Jessica Devaney for Multitude Films.
