Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary

2013 | 120 minutes | Rated NR

Mumia Abu-Jamal is an activist and journalist who was convicted of killing a police officer in 1982 and has spent 30 years on death row. This documentary is not an examination of Abu-Jamal's conviction—it implies that his innocence or guilt should be viewed in the context of racial politics, and, more importantly, that his culpability is a moot point. Film and audio of Abu-Jamal is electrifying, but in between are weird cartoons and live-action dramatizations of his writings. Viewers who read up on the case beforehand will have a better chance of navigating the film. (JOCELYN MACDONALD)
