Strong Island

By

Yance Ford

Filmmaker Yance Ford’s brother William was killed by a white mechanic after a common complaint about a car repair spiraled violently out of control. Twenty-five years later, Strong Island invents a startling cinematic language to penetrate a devastating collision of grief, racism, and injustice.
