Arri Alexa XT brings “Free State of Jones” to life on the big screen

It was a breathe of fresh air in a sea of recent films whose settings take place in the south and revolve around racial tension. Part of the success of the film can be attributed to the humble, straight forward cinematography that keeps you engaged in the moment and doesn’t stop to gloat or show off.
