Documentaries | D Marc Silver | USA, 2015

An acclaimed, timely documentary of how one murder reflects America's intractable problem with race.

On Black Friday 2012, an argument begins in a Florida gas station. Minutes later, after complaining about the "thug music" blaring from a car full of young, unarmed African Americans, middle-aged white man Michael Dunn fatally shoots one of the black teens, 17-year-old Jordan Davis. He claims self-defence.

An elegantly crafted observation of the perceived racial double standard eating away at the American justice system and an unsettling insight into the social and cultural inequality that causes it, 3½ Minutes, Ten Bullets sees director Marc Silver's stylish eye for the Jacksonville metropolis smack headlong into chilling footage of interrogation rooms and the murder scene; riveting courtroom testimony clash with the heartache of Davis' parents. This gripping film, which could be ripped straight from today's headlines, was honoured with the Special Award for Documentary Social Impact at Sundance.

"Extraordinarily powerful." – Indiewire
