Post film Q&A with professor Damon Maulucci

Part II of “Activism”

MISSISSIPPI BURNING is an all-names-changed dramatization of the Ku Klux Klan's murders of three civil rights workers in 1964. Two FBI agents with wildly different styles (Gene Hackman and Willem Dafoe) investigating the mysterious disappearances of the three activists, seek to breach the conspiracy of silence in a small Southern town where segregation divides black and white. As the investigation intensifies the KKK launches a series of attacks against the local African-American population.

Damon Maulucci received his MFA in Screenwriting at Columbia University. He wrote, directed and produced the feature film, DETONATOR and also served as a producer on the feature documentary, PAUL WILLIAMS STILL ALIVE. His films have screened all over the world including Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, Cinequest, Cork Film Festival, Brooklyn Film Festival and Indie Memphis. Damon Maulucci lives in Brooklyn, NY and teaches as a Visiting Professor in the Film and Television Master’s Program at Sacred Heart University.
