#ShortFilmShoutout: 'Easter Snap' From RaMell Ross Chronicles A Homestead Ritual

This is installment #16 of Shadow And Act's #ShortFilmShoutout series.

RaMell Ross' critically-acclaimed documentary, Hale County This Morning, This Evening, captivated audiences and was nominated for an Academy Award.

Now, his first short film is now available for streaming after making rounds at the Durban International Film Festival, BAMcinemaFest, the Montclair Film Festival, the Full Frame Documentary Film Festival and the Sundance Film Festival (where it premiered and was a Short Film Grand Jury Prize nominee).

Here's the description of the film: With a baited handling of American symbolism, Academy Award® and Emmy® nominee RaMell Ross (Hale County This Morning, This Morning) joins five men in Alabama as they resurrect the homestead ritual of hog processing under the guidance of an elder, Johnny Blackmon.

The short is from Field of Vision and Louverture Films.
