Neshoba: The Price of Freedom

Rated NR 90 minutes 2010

Revisiting the murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner, who arrived in Neshoba County, Mississippi in the summer of 1964 to register black voters, documentary filmmakers Micki Dickoff and Tony Pagano reveal that there’s been little retribution for the tragic events that transpired more than 45 years ago. Dickoff and Pagano traveled to Philadelphia, Mississippi in 2004 when 80-year-old klansmen Edgar Ray Killen—the only person among the group responsible for the killings ever to stand trial—was finally indicted. The filmmakers incorporate fascinating archival footage with interviews that include surviving family members of the murder victims. But the most riveting interview subject is the unrepentant Killen, who granted the filmmakers surprisingly broad access to his personal life.
