Say Her Name The Life and Death of Sandra Bland

In 2015, Sandra Bland, a politically active 28-year-old black woman from Chicago was arrested for a traffic violation in a small Texas town.  Three days later, Sandra was found hanging from a noose in her jail cell.  Though ruled a suicide, her death sparked allegations of racially-motivated police murder and Sandra became a poster child for police brutality and the BLM Movement, leaving millions to question 'What really happened to Sandra Bland?' 

The filmmakers worked closely with the family's legal team starting ten days after Sandra's death, tracking the two-year battle between Sandra's aggrieved family and a trio of small-town Texas authorities.  Filled with disturbing, never-before-told revelations about the case, the film is also punctuated by Sandra’s own passionate video blogs which call out racism in law enforcement, and eerily foreshadow her own death.  

Part legal thriller, part parable about race in America, SAY HER NAME takes viewers deep inside a story that came to polarize the nation.
