America Street

America Street

In this tender, moving portrait of Joe Watson, a corner store owner on America Street in Charleston, SC, Idrissou Mora-Kpai captures the hopes, dreams, and fears of a community battling gentrification, segregation, and racism. Although it was filmed in 2015, it hasn’t lost any of its relevancy; in fact, it has become a premonition of the troubles to come. Watson leads the film and the community without fear, but with resilience and hope in his heart for change and good in all people.
