    • Synopsis
    • Feature documentary that examines the violent death of filmmaker Ford’s brother over 20 years ago, and the collision of silence, race, fear and the judicial system that allowed his killer to go free. Artfully made, with extraordinary insight, this film calls us to bear witness to the reality rather than the abstraction of justice. It goes beyond interviews into the homes of those left behind, into profound crises of civic faith. It interrogates murderous fear, and re-imagines the wreckage in catastrophe’s wake, challenging us to change.
