Directed by Beryl Fox and Douglas Leiterman
Canada, 1963 (documentary, 52 minutes, black and white, English)
Also known as "One More River)", "The Mood of the South"

Film Description:
"This influential direct cinema documentary, which provides a portrait of the American South in the spring of 1963, was designed, in Douglas Leiterman's words, to 'communicate some sense of the real meaning of integration through the minds and emotions of the people directly involved.' It includes interviews with blacks and whites and sequences depicting situations that reflect the tumult of the time: students demonstrating against the admission of blacks to a university, the owner of a café ordering blacks out, a black couple being refused admission to a theatre."
