On Nov. 9, under orders from the Supreme Court, the U.S. 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals will reconsider reinstating Mumia Abu-Jamal’s death sentence. Mumia might still be executed. Justice on Trial, a new documentary by Big Noise Films, lays out the facts of the case, looks at recently discovered photographs of the crime scene and speaks to both sides of the case in order to understand the ongoing controversy around the world’s best-known death row inmate. In the process, the film explores what this case says about the US criminal justice system and why it continues to mobilize millions of people, here in the US and internationally.

This is a film for people who need an update on the facts and for those who need an introduction to the case.

Come and bring your friends. ---
