Fact vs. Fiction
It’s a case that many of us will never forget: The unfortunate event that involved Officer Darryl Wilson and Michael Brown.
Stranger Fruit, a documentary from filmmaker Jason Pollock, includes never-before-seen footage that contradicts police statement and the convenient store clerk’s account of what happened that fateful night of August 9th, 2014. The documentary premiered during SXSW and calls into question the police’s entire investigation. Naturally, it has also sparked outrage and questioned their integrity.
There were so many inconsistencies between the actual report and the surveillance that police feel that it will spark outrage once the footage is made readily available for the public. “This is a pill that the world is going to have to swallow,” Pollock said before introducing the film.
This is revolutionary.
