February 5: 3 ½ Minutes, 10 Bullets (2015)
Discussant: Dr. DeAnna Reese, Thomas Whit-Ellis and Melissa Harris
In 3 ½ Minutes, Ten Bullets, two lives intersected and were forever altered. On Black Friday 2012, two cars parked next to each other at a Florida gas station. A white middle-aged male and a black teenager exchanged angry words over the volume of the music in the boy’s car. A gun entered the exchange, and one of them was left dead. Michael Dunn fired 10 bullets at a car full of unarmed teenagers and then fled. Three of those bullets hit 17-year-old Jordan Davis, who died at the scene. Arrested the next day, Dunn claimed he shot in self-defense. Thus began the long journey of unraveling the truth. 3 ½ Minutes, Ten Bullets follows that journey, reconstructing the night of the murder and revealing how hidden racial prejudice can result in tragedy. A harrowing exploration of criminal justice gone awry & an all-too-timely film that speaks loudly to the current racial climate in America. — Indiewire 98 minutes.
