A short documentary by Los Angeles-based filmmaker Andrew Litten. Featuring his hometown of Atlanta, Georgia, “Atlanta From the Ashes” is a celebration of the city’s resiliency that touches on struggles from the civil rights movement to the current issues of gentrification, and includes preserved imagery of the SCLC, Julian Bond, MLK, John Wesley Dobbs and more. As Litten shared with us:

“I was able to interview a lot of incredible people in the city, but the most rewarding was to work directly with Emory University to pull from their archives to tell this story.”
