Brilliant direction!
3 August 2018 | by ActOneSee all my reviews

Kate Davis and David Heilbroner allowed us to show this magnificent documentary at the DOC WEEK Film Festival at the Martha's Vineyard Film Center in August 2018.

Kate's direction brilliantly incorporates Sandra Bland's video messages, placing them purposefully as bookends for the entire 100-minute documentary as well as scattered within the narrative of the film. Beautifully paced and elegantly edited, Sandra's story is revealed as a combination of mystery and biography.

You'll be thinking about this one for a long time after. In the future, every time you see a protest about police brutality, wrongful death or racial tensions in America, you mind will come back to this one.
