Finding Us

Directed by Kathryn Carlson

Georgetown University sold hundreds of enslaved people to stave off bankruptcy, scattering them across the South, never to see each other again. With the help of DNA databases, their descendants are reconnecting six generations later. FINDING US is a portrait of four descendants who are using their unique talents to regrow the family trees felled nearly two centuries ago.
