Emmett Still

“Emmett Still” captures a day in the precarious life of a young Black man. This is a world where a random encounter with police can quickly turn into a life or death situation. Ultimately, he discovers strength and assurance in the power and beauty of his ancestors. The film’s title references the brutal 1955 lynching of Chicago teen Emmett Till and links Till’s death to the ongoing violence aimed at Black male youth today.
