Storyline

National headlines blazed the story: Churchgoers Gunned Down During Prayer Service in Charleston, South Carolina. After a 21-year-old white supremacist opened fire in Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, nine African Americans lay dead, leaving their families and the nation to grapple with this senseless act of terror. Featuring intimate interviews with survivors and family members, EMANUEL, from executive producers Stephen Curry and Viola Davis, is a poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, examining the healing power of forgiveness.

Powerful and moving story!
6 December 2019 | by smestradaSee all my reviews

I had the privilege of meeting and working with Brian Ivie. He is one the most down to earth, gentle, and striking storytellers I know. Emanuel will move you to think beyond politics and leave you both broken because of the past AND hopeful for the future. The true story behind the victims of the Emanuel church shooting. Not just the ones who died, but the ones that were left behind. Heartbreaking. See the movie in an intimate setting with friends you can talk openly with. So important.
