3½ Minutes, Ten Bullets - 2 October
3½ Minutes, Ten Bullets explores the murder of black teenager Jordan Davis, after he engaged in a verbal dispute with Michael Dunn, a white middle-aged man about the volume of the music coming from his car. Michael Dunn fired 10 bullets into the car of unarmed teenagers and then fled, leaving Jordan Davis dead. In court Michael Dunn claimed he shot in self-defence, but with no evidence that the teenagers were armed, his story lacked credibility. The film follows Jordan’s parents and friends as they fight for justice as well as grapple with an unimaginable loss. Although, the documentary does not celebrate history or an achievement, it raises awareness of how hidden racial prejudices can too often result in tragedy. It's beautifully shot and includes footage from police tapes, trial recordings and even Dunn’s own private phone conversations.
