New Directors / New Filmswhich runs March 15th through the 26th is a festival of emerging international filmmakers here in NYC each year.We'll be covering a few titles including this unravelling of a Long Island murder inGlenn's weekly documentary spotlight.

Strong Island

"There's one place that all the people with the greatest potential are gathered.One place.And that's the graveyard.People ask me all the time: what kind of stories do you want to tell,Viola?And I say exhume those bodies – exhume those stories."

I thought of these words from Viola Davis' Academy Awards speech last weekwhile writing aboutthe ABC queer rights miniseriesWhen We Rise;thinking of all the men and women lost over the years to AIDS and what they could have done and who they could have been.I did not expect to be thinking of them yet again so quickly,but here we are.I thought of Viola's words while watchingStrong Islandbecause exhume is exactly what first-time filmmaker Yance Ford has done with this film about the death of his older,19-year-old brother,William,at the hands of a white man who the courts sort little interest in seeking justice for.
