Friday, August 4, 7:00 p.m.
directed by Erik Ljung | Running time: 1 hr 38 mins.
Director Erik Ljung has crafted a piece of essential viewing, one that has much to contribute to our understanding of the ongoing epidemic of police violence. We get to know the victim, and watch the transformation of his family into activists. We see and feel their frustration and anger with institutional responses. We come to understand the ugly role police unions and “blue lives matter” rallies play in preserving an oppressive status quo. The setting may be Milwaukee, but it could just as well be anywhere – and it’s a film every citizen should see.
Guest speaker to be announced.
