Our Mockingbird, by local filmmaker and Birmingham native Sandy Jaffe, is a film based on Harper Lee's classic coming of age story, To Kill A Mockingbird, and how it still resonates in our national discourse about race, class, gender, and justice. Woven through the film is the story of two contrasting high schools, one white and one black in present day Birmingham, Alabama who stage a co-production of the adapted play with transformative results.
