WILDER, KY.—Rachel Lyon came to filmmaking as an academic—she moved to Wilder, Ky., three years ago when she became a professor and artist-in-residence at Northern Kentucky University. Historical research continues at the foundation of her documentary film work.
Lyon has produced 65 documentaries, most of them for television, over the past 30-plus years. Her latest, "Hate Crimes in the Heartland," probes connections between two multiple murders with racial overtones in Tulsa, Okla.
In this video, featuring clips from the documentary, Lyon discusses her artistic motivations and choices.
A screening of the film, along with a panel discussion, is at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24, at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, 50 E. Freedom Way, in Cincinnati. Cost is $15.
