Strong Island
  • Year2016
  • Duration107 min

Twenty-five years after director Yance Ford’s brother was murdered on Long Island, NY, the family scars run deep. In this stylish, searing, and accomplished film, Ford revisits the painful topic which he has so long avoided. Unflinching testimonials bear witness to decades of grief, exacerbated by the fact the police showed no interest in investigating the murder of a young black male.
