From the Daily Dot

In April 1992, William Ford Jr. was shot and killed during a dispute. An all-white grand jury did not indict the white man who killed William, a black man. Strong Island, directed and produced by William's sister Yance Ford, is a searing look at a family's loss. It's also a way for Yance to reclaim her brother's name and dictate the narrative of his life rather than letting the courts have the final say. Strong Island is an intimate, angry documentary that is also one of 2017's best.
