So many gorgeous shots in this poetic meditation by London/Los Angeles-based director and photographer Savanah Leaf. Speaking to two specific cases that changed the culture of the South — the murders of Emmett Till and Trayvon Martin — “The Ayes Have It” offers a mixed-race woman’s perspective on racial discrimination and justice in America.
