Presented by Second Chance Cinema. In 31/2 minutes, two lives intersected and were forever altered.
On Black Friday in 2012, two cars parked next to each other at a Florida gas station. A white middle-aged male and a black teenager exchanged angry words over the volume of the music in the boy’s car. A gun entered the exchange, and one of them was left dead.
Michael Dunn fired ten bullets at a car full of unarmed teenagers and then fled. Three of those bullets hit 17-year-old Jordan Davis, who died at the scene. Arrested the next day, Dunn claimed he shot in self-defence. Thus began the long journey of unravelling the truth. ‘31⁄2 Minutes, Ten Bullets’ follows that journey, reconstructing the night of the murder and revealing how hidden racial prejudice can result in tragedy.
Silver remains exceptionally clear-eyed. The result is a powerful, gripping and deeply shocking film, and a contemptuous critique of Florida’s stand-your- ground law.Empire Magazine
