In 2015, academic and activist Sandra Bland was pulled over for failing to signal a lane change. Three days later she committed suicide in police custody. SAY HER NAME follows Bland’s family as they try to get to the bottom of her mysterious death with the help of private investigators – and immediately discover that official story is full of holes. With this engrossing and topical true crime documentary Kate Davis and David Heilbroner has made a thought-provoking film about American law enforcement’s unproportional – and often deadly – use of force towards citizens of colour.
