      Following the 1954 Supreme Court decision in the Brown vs. Board of Education case and the passage by Congress of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, schools across the south gradually began the process of integration. In some communities, this process was not without friction and violence.
In Virginia, some schools actually closed rather than integrate. But not so in Orange County. Despite resistance from some of its citizens and pressure from outside groups, the desegregation of the Orange County Virginia public school system, albeit 11 years in the making, happened smoothly. Why?
This documentary seeks to answer that question by exploring the process, from the creation of the first fledgling African American schools in the late 19thcentury through consolidation and resistance in the mid 20thcentury to full integration…a process that took almost 100 years.

      Back in 1984, Phil had the good fortune to meet, photograph and interview Edna Lewis, author of the seminal cookbook on southern cuisine, The Taste of Country Cooking. Born and raised in the freedman’s community of Freetown in Orange County, Virginia, Edna went on to become the “Grande Dame” of southern cooking. She gave, not just southern cooking, but all American regional cuisine a place to call its own. And she was one of the first to preach the benefits of Earth to Table and Grow Local, Eat Local. Her memory was honored at the Orange Downtown Alliance’s first edibleFest, for which, Phil and Susie and Ross Hunter produced a 25-minute video documentary, In the Season…The Edna Lewis Story.

      On February 2nd, 2013, Gordonsville Virginia turned 200 years old. Because it has been Phil’s hometown since he was eight years old, he and Susie and Ross decided to do something about it. The result is Gordonsville…A Strong Fabric. It tells the story of a resilient community from its humble beginnings as a tavern at a crossroads up to the present day. There are many stories here: the railroad, the Civil War, the boom years and the bust. Fires, fried chicken, and the future all figure into it, but it’s really a story about its people and the strong fabric of their community.

      All Four Years: The Civil War in Orange County, Virginia stems from a driving tour that Phil wrote for the Orange County Department of Tourism to kick off the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. The resulting documentary “morphed into something much bigger,” says Audibert, who used modern day photographs, video of recent re-enactments plus 1860’s era photographs to illustrate that the Civil War was felt locally for all four of its years. The hour-long film focuses more on the impact of the war and its consequences on the citizens of Orange County than on troop movements and tactics.
