Who We Are Trailer

"Once again, we are at a tipping point." Sony Classics has debuted an official trailer for a provocative new documentary called Who We Are: A Chronicle of Racism in America, an intensely sobering look at the very racist history of America. (Not to be confused with Luca Guadagnino's series We Are Who We Are from last year.) This initially premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival earlier this year, and stopped by many other fests including Hot Docs, AFI Fest, and the Seattle, Milwaukee, Woodstock, & Philadelphia Film Festivals. Interweaving lecture, personal anecdotes, interviews, and shocking revelations, criminal defense / civil rights lawyer Jeffery Robinson draws a stark timeline of anti-Black racism in the United States, from slavery to the modern myth of a post-racial America (the times we're in now). As important and necessary as it is to have this conversation, I just don't know if it will make a difference anymore. I certainly hope people will watch this doc and think differently, but will that actually happen? It's worth a shot! Take a look below.
