UNSPOKEN is a documentary feature film that traces the journey of local resident Stephanie Calabrese  who used an iphone to document the racial divide in the local community “through the lens of her own whiteness.” In doing so, Calabrese uncovers buried truths and explores how the community has been impacted by its racial divide. It covers the impact of the 1946 Moore’s Ford Lynching that has long been an open wound in the community and it attempts to shatter the code of silence that has surrounded this incident for generations.

The movie, written and directed by Calabrese, has won numerous awards.
