THE STORY
Days after stepping off the train, 14-year old Emmett Till from Chicago goes missing in Money, Mississippi. Later, the boy's mutilated body is found in a river. William Bradford Huie of Look magazine interviews the people of Money to get at the root of what happened. The two men acquitted for the boy's murder, Roy Bryant Jr. and J.W. Milam, agree to sit down to discuss the trial. Not a word had been uttered outside a courtroom by them or their kin, until now...

DAR HE: The Lynching of Emmett Till, is the TRUE STORY crafted from the public record: a transfixing, true-dramatization of the historic interviews and events surrounding the murder that became a lightning rod for moral outrage and pivotal in inspiring a whole generation of young people to commit to social change in the 1950s. 'His death was a spark that ignited the Civil Rights Movement in America,' Ed Bradley, Emmy Award-winning journalist.

The film was adapted from the play written and performed by Mike Wiley, Dar He: The Story of Emmett Till.
