Son of the South puts the spotlight on real life heroes Bob Zellner, John Lewis and Rosa Parks, who made history with the civil rights protests in the 1960's.
'Son of the South' Speaks To The Times 🎬
Son of the South is the latest timely film based on true events in Montgomery, Alabama in 1961.
Bob Zellner (Lucas Till) and four fellow students attended an event held in a Black church to mark the fifth anniversary of the 1955-56 Montgomery Bus Boycott.
Lucas Till, Lex Scott Davis and director, Barry Alexander Brown, reveal what they hope audiences take away from the important story.
"It's that indifference that's led to this. I won't talk about anything I do, [but] this time... I'm like 'you have to see this movie!' Everyone does an incredible job," Till said.
"It's going to be very important for, specifically, white audiences to check this film out... to understand how important it is that their voice is needed in this movement as well. It just can't be black and brown people that stand up for themselves. It has to be everyone in order to get change," Davis said.
"It's taken a long time to make, but I think, somehow by some miracle... it's coming out at the right time," Brown said.
Son of the South is in theaters and available on-demand now.
