THE UNTOLD STORY OF
EMMETT LOUIS TILL

Beauchamp | 2005 | US | 70m
*Q&A w/dir. and journo Herb Boyd, moderated by Claudia Williams
“Black Panther Party Film Festival”
7:00 at Maysles Institute

“14-year-old Emmett Till was kidnapped from his uncle’s house in Money, Mississippi, beaten beyond recognition, tortured, murdered, and thrown into the Tallahatchie River, all for supposedly whistling at a white woman. A triumph of documentary activism nine years in the making, The Untold Story of Emmett Louis Till revisits Till’s death and the trial and acquittal of the two men [who] later confessed to the crime in a magazine interview (both have since died). Marshaling testimony from eyewitnesses, many of whom had never told their stories publicly, director Keith A. Beauchamp invokes a repressive atmosphere of institutional paranoia… If the film gets choppy toward the end, it’s for good reason: Beauchamp’s documentary has prompted the federal government to reopen the case.”
Joshua Land, Village Vocie
