After Dontre Hamilton, a black, unarmed man diagnosed with schizophrenia, was shot 14 times and killed by police in Milwaukee, his family embarks on a quest for answers, justice, and reform as the investigation unfolds. Filmed over the course of three years in the direct aftermath of Dontre’s death, this powerful and intimate vérité documentary follows his family as they channel their grief into community organizing in an attempt to reset the narrative. Run Time: 90 minutes. Directed by Erik Ljung. There is a pre-showing activity or community panel at 6:15 p.m. along with the screening at 7, and a post-show Q & A with the film’s director. On Screen/In Person is made possible by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Arts’ Regional Touring Program.
