What The River Knows: From Screenplay to Silver Screen

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

A very special journey from Screenplay to Silver Screen. An original story inspired by the 1898 massacre in Wilmington, NC, funded in part by the Filmed in NC Grant.

On 10 November 1898, in the thick of a white supremacist massacre and the only coup d’etat in the United States, a young black couple dies a tragic death. A hundred years later, an unwilling descendant – captured by the couple’s relentless spirit – relives the last six months of their short lives, unearthing century-old secrets of a family, a people, and a city torn apart by politics, greed, jealousy, murder, and a past from which they have yet to recover. Will they ever be redeemed?
