    The Boston Globe - 07/04/2015

    On July 14, more than five decades after her debut novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” first appeared, 89-year-old Harper Lee’s long-awaited follow-up “Go Set a Watchman” will finally be published. On that same date at 8 p.m., PBS World Channel’s “America Reframed” will air Sandra Jaffe’s “Our Mockingbird,” a documentary that shows how Lee’s beloved tale continues to engage communities in discourse about the unresolved issues of race, class, and justice. The film follows two Alabama high school classes — one white, one black — as they collaborate to stage a production based on the book. Boston based, but raised in Birmingham, Ala., Jaffe has been teaching screenwriting at Northeastern University since 2012. Here are some of the films that helped shape her cinematic and political sensibilities.
