Passing
The videomaker's grandmother recounts the tale of a trip she and her lover took through the segregated South of the 1950s. As her story unfolds--revealing as much in silences and gaps as it does in its actual narrative-- a blues and gospel soundtrack provides other tales of miscegenation and resistance. The story is full of tensions around race, class and color and the anxieties produced by the racial climate and violent history of the South.
