“holler”

This is exciting! Especially on the heels of Prom Night in Mississippi.  As I was watching the documentary, I wondered if there were any biracial students in Charleston, MS.  Actually if there were any biracial people there at all.  It seems as though it would be a miracle.  Anyway, this movie will show us what it might be like if there were a biracial student in that very segregated setting…

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – Screen Gems and Jennifer Aniston are teaming up to tell a tale of lingering racial tensions in the Deep South.

The company has acquired “Holler” (aka “Mutt”), written by Dana Adam Shapiro, co-director of the Oscar-nominated documentary “Murderball.”

Inspired by true events, the script centers on a biracial high school student who returns with his white mother to her hometown in Mississippi, where he falls for a white girl. When prom season arrives at the high school, he is shocked to discover that she cannot be his date at the segregated prom. He soon finds himself a catalyst for change, not only for the prom but for the school and entire town.

HBO on Monday aired a documentary on the same subject, “Prom Night in Mississippi.”

The film will be produced by Aniston’s partner at Echo Films, Kristin Hahn, along with Tracey Durning. Aniston will executive produce with Jeff Mandel.

One thought on ““holler”

  1. My kids are both biracial. I am amazed at the amount of hate some people still to this day have. It is very said and I live about 2 hours away from this town. When are people going to start loving and stop hurting. We are not all the same and god did not just make black and white ect. He made people of all races and features, and disabilities
