Film showing at Blue Hill Library



BLUE HILL — Peninsula Peace and Justice’s monthly film series will feature the documentary “Did You Wonder Who Fired the Gun?” at 7 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22, at the Blue Hill Public Library.

Lauded as one of the Ten Best Films at Sundance 2017, it follows steps in a committed veteran documentarian filmmaker’s return to the Alabama of his childhood to question the truth behind his white family’s abuse and violence toward blacks they knew, as well as its men’s rampant abuses of women.

Telling details accent Travis Wilkerson’s path as he explores his uncertainties about his great-grandfather’s untried killing of a black man in his corner store. Black and white Southerners are interviewed with informal tact and intimacy.

The screening is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
