BULLETS IN THE HOOD: A BED-STUY STORY

Large_film_12725067_photo1
Co-director Terrence Fisher's world has been traumatized by gun violence. In 2004, he watched his best friend get shot and killed by a police officer. The killing of this innocent teen outraged Bedford-Stuyvesant residents, but a grand jury ruled it simply a tragic accident and no indictment was issued against the officer. Fisher and his friends fought back by organizing protests and filming this documentary.
