Radical filmmakers Migrant Media have launched a Crowdfunding Campaign for completion of UV – the follow up film to the radical documentary Injustice about deaths in police custody in UK.
About Injustice: “The most important British documentary of my professional lifetime” Peter Bradshaw, Guardian Film Critic. Complete petition Channel 4 to screen ‘Injustice’ film >
UV (75minutes/2019/UK) is the feature length documentary which, like the film Injustice, follows the struggles for justice of families in the UK whose loved ones have been killed by the police. The film has taken 10 years to produce working with several families of people killed by the police.
Those of you who know of Injustice will not need explaining what UV will do but if you have not seen Injustice please watch it here so that you can have an idea of what you will be part of supporting with UV.
UV takes a similar path to Injustice working with a group of families as they struggle to find the truth about what happened to their loved ones. The film goes further though as it examines state violence at a broader level, as well as the resistance to it. The new film is a powerful reflection on the cases that are investigated and puts the demands and thoughts of the families at its core.
