Living Legacy documents a community’s effort to preserve a historic and undervalued building and celebrate the work, sacrifices, and memories of their forebears who attended the school. The film captures the vivid school-day memories of the Russell School’s living alumni as well as the passion of the school’s board members who work persistently to maintain the school and share its history. The film also treats the building as a character allowing the physical space to express its own memories and develop a unique voice.
