In this first masterclass with RaMell Ross, the director of Hale County This Morning, This Evening, we held a conversation about his career (which traces from basketball to large format photography to film), and the power of documentary to explore issues of race, identity, and humanity.
Making Cinema Matter in Baltimore is a FREE artist-led workshop and screening series featuring distinguished visiting filmmakers who connect their films and filmmaking to social, creative, or cultural issues in Baltimore. This project is presented in partnership with Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), Johns Hopkins University, Maryland Film Festival/Stavros Niarchos Foundation Parkway Theatre, and the Saul Zaentz Innovation Fund. This project is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
