Recommended age 15+
This gripping documentary is based on events that started at a Florida gas station, when software developer Michael Dunn asked four young black men in a red SUV to turn their music down. The ensuing argument lead to a shooting, at the end of which 17-year-old Jordan Davis is dead. Dunn plead self-defence. Jordan’s story is told through testimonials from the stand, recordings and other footage. With gun control on the Election agenda, and the Black Lives Matter campaign taking hold, the film makes for timely viewing.
