Whitman, Alabama is an experiment using documentary film and poetry to reveal the threads that tie us together — as people, as states, and as a nation.
For two years, filmmaker Jennifer Crandall has crisscrossed Alabama and invited people to look into a camera and share a part of themselves by reading the words of Walt Whitman’s “Song of Myself.”
Read Kathleen Rooney’s introduction, “Making the Words Ours.” Visit the Whitman, Alabama, website, where you can learn more and watch the videos. Keep up with the latest on the Whitman, Alabama Facebook page.
