Return to Mississippi (Work in Progress) 
Documentary
84 minutes
Director: Paul Saltzman
Year: 2012
Country: Canada, USA
Sat 12:00pm

In the summer of 1965, Canadian Paul Saltzman went south to participate in the voter registration movement with the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) in the Mississippi Delta. He was arrested, as well as punched in the head by a 19 year-old member of the KKK. He is now a filmmaker and this personal journey leads him to conversations with Mississippi resident Morgan Freeman and Harry Belafonte, an original founder of SNCC and one of Martin Luther King Jr.ís inner-circle advisors. He also interviews at length the unapologetic KKK member who assaulted him.

He looks at Mississippi, as it is today, from a perspective of how it used to be - weaving together a strong feeling and connection to this part of America, and American history. Saltzman will present this special Work in Progress screening and the audience will have a chance to discuss his plans for completing the film. [language]
