ABOUT THE SHOW
Documentary filmmaker Margaret Brown (“The Order of Myths", “The Great Invisible”) returns to her hometown of Mobile, Alabama to document the search for and historic discovery of The Clotilda, the last known ship to arrive in the United States, illegally carrying enslaved Africans. After a century of secrecy and speculation, the 2019 discovery of the ship turns attention toward the descendant community of Africatown and presents a moving portrait of a community actively grappling with and fighting to preserve their heritage while examining what justice looks like today.
DESCENDANT will be opening in select theaters and streaming on Netflix on October 21.
The screening will be followed by a conversation with director, producer Margaret Brown, and producers Essie Chambers and Kyle Martin.
Viewing instructions will be sent to the provided email just prior to the scheduled start time. The film will be available until midnight, Sunday, November 6.
