Storyline

Unlike any other film, book, or article produced about Mumia Abu-Jamal, "Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary" focuses on his career as a prolific author and broadcaster from Pennsylvania's Death Row. In fact, the film does not deal with Abu-Jamal's case, but rather chronicles his life and work as a journalist and revolutionary - both prior and post incarceration. After Abu-Jamal is convicted for the murder of of Philadelphia patrolman Daniel Faulkner, the story then exposes Abu-Jamal's battles with the American court system to continue his work from prison- a battle he continues to wage to this very day. Written by Street Legal Cinema

Excellent chronicle of one of the most important thinkers of the 21st Century
10 July 2013 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Because of Mumia Abu-Jamal's honesty and integrity, not to mention his gift of communicating through the medium of writing and broadcast journalism, this film is crucial is bringing information to the world audience of his humble beginnings and his consistent search for truth and justice.

Since I've known him since the early days of WRTI in Philly and have been an ardent fan of his for many years, I can attest to the film's accuracy and historical validity. Great job done for a great cause. Mumia Abu-Jamal must be set free.

Much respect, staajabu
