60 Years and Still

Directed by: Sally Tran | Production Company: Side Projects | Documentary | 2020 | USA | 3:23




This table top, mixed media short film covers six decades of race and injustice in America through ten incidents of Black lives taken by police. Some of these incidents sparked national media coverage and furious uprisings across the country, while others didn’t get the attention they deserved.

This disregard for Black lives has been consistent since enslaved Africans first arrived in America in 1619. This film highlights just a brief moment in the long history of injustice, specifically police brutality, against African Americans. In 1963 Martin Luther King Jr. called for the end of racism and injustice against Black people in the US. Yet in 2020, history continues to repeat itself before our very eyes. It’s time for change.
