Digital Release: I NEVER PICKED COTTON

I NEVER PICKED COTTON is available to watch on Vimeo.

I loved this film; the message, that the story is told through animation, and (as a former teacher) the fact that twelve students worked together to co-direct it!! I NEVER PICKED COTTON gives us an interesting and beautiful message about forgiveness in the midst of racial tensions. — Lauren (Head Programmer)
