Dar He: The Lynching of Emmett Till
In 1955 a 14-year-old Chicago youth named Emmett Till travels to the Mississippi Delta with country kinfolk and Southern cooking on his mind. He walks off the train and into a world he could never understand: a world of thick color lines, of hard-held class systems and unspeakable taboos. Young Emmett crosses that line and steps into his gruesome fate by whistling at a white woman. Experience the story, trial, and unbelievable confessions of the man accused of Emmett’s murder in this riveting drama.
The film was adopted from the popular one man play written and performed by Mike Wiley. In this experimental approach to telling the story, Mike Wiley plays every character. The film has won numerous award across the United States and Europe. The film has a running time of 70 minutes. More at: http://darhemovie.wix.com
