New Documentary Film Focuses on Mumia's Innocence:
How Philadelphia's Police and DA actively manufactured Mumia's guilt, and suppressed his innocence
A short film by Stephen Vittoria, writer/director of "Mumia - Long Distance Revolutionary,"
with Rachel Wolkenstein, lawyer for Mumia, and legal consultant on this film.
Co-produced by Noelle Hanrahan of Prison Radio.
"Manufacturing Guilt" is a riveting narrative description, with graphics, of how Mumia was framed and sent to death row for a crime he didn't commit.
“’Manufacturing Guilt’ highlights truth. Everybody who has a heart for justice, passion for truth, and concern for the innocent should see this film.” -Keith Cook (Mumia’s eldest brother)
“’Manufacturing Guilt’ is a chilling and vital inside view of what happened to my beloved father Mumia Abu-Jamal on that forsaken night that forever changed his life—and ours." -Jamal Hart (Mumia’s oldest son)
