“As Nancy said to me, one person doesn’t make a film and she is totally correct…This group has put together an amazing film about a very important case in our country’s history. A documentary that will make you think about how quickly something can be taken from you and how if you truly believe in something, you should fight for it no matter the odds.”

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of the official Loving Story Teacher’s Guide, created by Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Available for viewing here, the guide is a valuable resource for educators and students alike, walking classrooms through this complex and often overlooked part of American History.
Covering a broad range of topics including the Arts, History, Civics, Geography, and Language Arts, this equips classrooms to have a dynamic learning experience by getting out of textbooks and into film.

This TUESDAY, Jan 31st, The Loving Story will be screening at the Jacob Burns Film Center in Pleasantville, NY. If you’ve never been, this is an amazing space dedicated to film and media arts.
Join us at 7:30pm for the film, following by a Q&A with director Nancy Buirski.
It made our day to see this shoutout from Bust Magazine, calling The Loving Story a Must-Watch and “the most romantic and moving documentary of the year.”
Their particular choice of photograph is also the perfect opportunity to give a very special thanks to Barbara Villet for her beautifully written piece about her late husband, Grey Villet, and the story behind his photography of the Loving family.
Of the image above, she wrote:
“…a picture of Richard and Mildred Loving standing on their porch with a pillar between them quietly suggests the legal barriers then threatening their marriage.”
We encourage you to read her essay as it adds another intimate layer to the deeply moving photography.
