  • Two Towns of Jasper

    2001. USA. Directed by Marco Williams, Whitney Dow. In 1998 in Jasper, Texas, a modern-day lynching occurred when James Byrd, Jr., a black man, was chained to a pickup truck and dragged to his death by three white men. Two film crews, one black and one white, set out to document the aftermath of the murder and follow the trials of the accused. Courtesy of Two Tone Productions. (POV) 83 min.
