Tobacco Burn - (Screening B)

Based on an oral history from the W.P.A. Writers, Tobacco Burn is a story set thirty-five years before the Civil War at the height of American slavery. Our story follows a slave community on a Kentucky tobacco farm as they struggle with the arrival of a brutal overseer. When two of the enslaved weigh the complexities of killing the man, each develop a different understanding towards violence, acting on which could cost all of them their lives.
