“FREEDOM RIDERS” | director, Stanley Nelson

[PREMIERE SCREENING: Monday, Jan. 25, 6:00 pm — Temple Theatre, Park City]

I think the hardest decision for us among many hard ones was to make this film without narration. This had an impact on every aspect of the filmmaking and upped the “degree of difficulty” by a factor of 10. But it finally was a great decision because the story is now told largely by those who participated in the Freedom Rides. It became their story and not a story about them.
