Oscar-nominated filmmaker Raoul Peck skillfully brings the Reels family's hardships to life in the gripping documentary Silver Dollar Road (2023). The film tells the heartbreaking story of Melvin and Licurtis Reels through the perspective of their tenacious niece, Kim Renee Duhon, and strong grandmother, Mamie Reels Ellison. Due to their unwavering refusal to leave their ancestral houses, these two men were sentenced to eight years in prison, making them the longest-serving prisoners for civil contempt in American history. The 2019 ProPublica report that served as inspiration for Silver Dollar Road illuminates the judicial system's devious strategies that threaten Black families' ability to own land, hence sustaining the wealth gap between races. This moving documentary, which will have its world premiere on Friday, October 13, 2023, explores family, legacy, and the pursuit of justice.
