Rating: Not Rated

Language: English

Featuring a Q&A moderated by the Black, Bold & Brilliant team with film’s director, Julian Rubinstein, and participant, Terrance Roberts.

Told from the perspective of former gang leader turned activist Terrance Roberts, the story centers on a controversial shooting that took place at a peace rally that Roberts himself organized. Over the course of eight years, Rubinstein patiently unpacks the intricate layers of Roberts himself, the community, media misinformation and the contentious history of criminal injustices that fed gang violence in Denver.

As Roberts stands trial for life in prison, Rubinstein’s investigation into the shooting cracks open a window into the complex and often problematic relationships that exist amongst gentrification and violence, communities of color, high-rolling developers, law enforcements, informants and city hall.

This screening is provided with support from media sponsor Amplify Utah.
