10 years in the making with director Yance Ford shooting over 500 hours of footage.
Yance Ford made this film because he was dissatisfied with the way the authorities handled the murder of his older brother William in 1992. His sibling was shot and killed in an altercation with a white mechanic when he was just 24. His killer was never charged.
Director Yance Ford became the first openly transgender person to be nominated for an Academy Award.
The film's formal interview style is to provide some distance from the emotional story being told.
