Left Turn II

An inspiring story of two men struggling to preserve their friendship despite the barriers perpetuated by a racially-divided society.

Behind the Story

Though Left Turn 2 is a fictional narrative, it reflects real circumstances and stories in Evansville.


The first step we take when approaching all our films is listening, and because of the delicate subject of this film, we paid special attention to researching Evansville's racially-divided history and interviewing people who are affected by racial injustice today.

The people we interviewed shared personal stories and provide a great example of people who are building bridges in our community. We are grateful for their openness and transparency.
