SOUTHERN RITES (sign language interpreted; no Closed Captioning) follows photographer Gillain Laub as she returns to the community in Georgia where she documented segregated proms that garnered national attention when her photographs were published in 2009. The proms are now integrated, but in the aftermath of a fatal shooting of a young black man and in the midst of a heated local election, the community still grapples with issues of race that extend well beyond the senior prom. Post-film discussion facilitated by the film’s director, Gillian Laub,  Kathleen Graham and Ed Barlow.
