Racist Trees

DIRECTOR(S):
Sara Newens, Mina T. Son
SYNOPSIS:

In this incredibly crafted documentary, racial tensions are reignited as a historically Black neighborhood in Palm Springs fights for the removal of a wall of trees that many believe were originally planted as a totem of segregation. The battle to uproot them gained national attention and divided the community. This revealing film explores the heated controversy in all its gnarled complexity.
