Coming to theatres tonight, Monday, June 17 and this Wednesday, June 19 only:
The aftermath of the church shooting in Charleston.
The film screened as part of DOC NYC, for which our program notes read:
On June 17, 2015, 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, Brian Ivie tells a poignant story of justice and faith, love, and hate, examining the healing power of forgiveness.
