Our Mockingbird

Synopsis
OUR MOCKINGBIRD is a documentary that uses Harper Lee’s 1960 novel ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ as a lens to view race, class, gender and justice, then and now. Woven through the film is the story of two very different high schools in Birmingham, Alabama - one black, one white - who collaborate on a remarkable production of the adapted play, ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’.
