James Scurlock, Out of Omaha, and the Machinery of White Supremacy

Ryan Johnston, Voices August 2020 

Last spring, the film Out of Omaha – a documentary I produced with my fellow filmmakers for the better part of a decade – made its Omaha debut to sold-out crowds at Aksarben Cinema during the Omaha Film Festival. The film spans eight years in the life of Darcell Trotter, a young man from North Omaha struggling to survive generational poverty. It depicts a barrage of injustices wrought upon him during this time, including multiple arrests for charges that were later dropped – although not before they had been reported by media in Omaha and throughout the state, doing irreparable harm to his life and reputation.
