Hindsight, a documentary short film series, chronicling the live experiences of communities of color in the American South on the unprecedented experience of 2020.

LPB is pleased to present, Hindsight, a documentary short film series, chronicling the lived experiences of Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) communities in the American South and in Puerto Rico. Two Louisiana-based filmmakers were selected to be a part of this exciting project, with LPB providing guidance and mentorship to filmmakers Zac Manuel and Kiyoko McCrae.

LPB, working in conjunction with Firelight Media, Reel South, the Center for Asian American Media (CAAM), and public media stations across the South, was pleased to work with the talented, emerging filmmakers as they explored the cultural shifts, community ingenuity, and pivotal conversations that took part across the South during the pandemic and social justice movements of 2020.
