Demand for Justice

Overview

Synopsis

On December 13th, 2014 a multicultural blanket of people united worldwide demanding justice for Eric Garner, a man killed by a Staten Island, police officer. His death succeeded a series of cases involving unarmed black men killed by law enforcement figures. The trend sparked public outcry and frustration. Protesters rapidly amassed supporters who advocated #BlackLivesMatter in hopes of ceasing racial injustices and inequalities displayed by the United States Judicial System on all levels.

P.S. I Can’t Breathe provides a raw, uncensored glimpse into the Millions March NYC immediately AFTER a grand jury deliberated to not indict the officer responsible for Eric Garners death. Tens of thousands of protesters and social justice groups rallied together in NYC to urge lawmakers to take action against police brutality. Real interviews with the protesters capture the depths of hurt and anger in the community, along with their hope for justice and suggestions for solutions.
