Verona • 1h 16m
Verona (Romeo Brooks) – Verona, a beautiful young woman in antebellum Georgia, is born into to a prominent family. Yet, being of mixed-race, she is made a slave by her own father, and is forbidden to love anyone, slave or free. Becoming infatuated by a young slave, Verona is, soon after, forced by her circumstances to come to terms with the futility of her new haunting, uniquely somber parody of the Technicolor melodramas of the 1940s and 1950s. A backward gaze at American slavery observed through layers of history, popular cinema, culture and myth, from contemporary race relations all the way back to the antebellum.
