The new film, Stranger Fruit, by Jason Pollock, documents the police murder of 18 year old Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri, on August 9, 2014. Interviews with witnesses describe how he was shot multiple times with his hands up. Shocking footage of the immediate aftermath of the murder shows how police left his body in the middle of the street for over four hours. It shows the upsurge of outrage that swept across the country and the world: the heartbreaking grief and loss the Brown family suffered, like many Black and Brown people whose children or other family members have been murdered by police while the cops walk free. Stranger Fruit tears the cover off the lies and distortions pumped out by the murdering pig Darren Wilson, the chief of police, the mayor of Ferguson, and by city, state, and federal government officials. This is a film filled with heart, anguish and determination to get to the truth and should not be missed.
