CIVIL

Politics

Attorney Benjamin Crump is on a mission to root out anti-Black racism and violence by hitting perpetrators where they’re hurt most: their wallets. Representing the families of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Daunte Wright, Andre Hill, Winston Boogie Smith, Jacob Blake, and the people of Flint, Michigan, among others, in civil lawsuits, Crump has been working to ensure financial accountability and raise the value that courts put on Black life. 

Bursting with passion, emotion, and ideas, CIVIL is a deeply-felt piece of non-fiction filmmaking that approaches police violence through the lens of one man, his diligent work, and the compassion and community that guide him. Charting a fraction of Crump’s far-reaching work from 2020 to 2021, Nadia Hallgren crafts an empathetic, empowering documentary that speaks to what justice can and should look like today. --Cara Cusumano
