SILVER DOLLAR ROAD
Join us after the screening for a Q&A with producer Hébert Peck.
The latest documentary from Oscar-nominee Raoul Peck (director of PFF25’s Best Documentary Feature and Audience Award winner I AM NOT YOUR NEGRO) is a searing exploration of justice denied and a family’s unwavering determination to protect their legacy. For more than a century, the Reels family’s waterfront property has served as both a home and community haven, offering activities, businesses, and what was once the only local beach available to Black residents. But when a relentless developer exploits legal loopholes to claim their ancestral land, a battle for justice ignites. SILVER DOLLAR ROAD is a riveting documentary that captures the Reels family’s decades-long fight to preserve their heritage. This compelling film sheds light on a flawed legal system that often turns a blind eye to predatory practices exacerbating Black Americans’ rapid land loss, fueling greater economic disparity. As the battle unfolds, SILVER DOLLAR ROAD unveils a story of resilience, defiance, and the enduring strength of family bonds.
