When the horrific murder of nine Black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina in 2015 sparks a national reckoning around the meaning of the Confederate flag, battle lines are drawn in Mississippi to determine the fate of the last state flag with the most powerful and divisive symbol of the Confederacy. In Look Away, Look Away, director Patrick O’Connor introduces us to an array of activists from both sides of the debate over Confederate symbols, and captures the fierce five-year battle to remove the Mississippi state flag, revealing how race, heritage and long-simmering grievances over the Civil War shapes our sense of who we are as Americans.
