The film, which was executive produced by Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry and Academy, Emmy, and Tony Award-winner Viola Davis, will be available to stream until June 16th, the day before the tragic mass murder’s 5th Anniversary.
Emanuel tells the story of the massacre at Mother Emanuel through the eyes of surviving relatives, journalists, local officials, and more. The official website states that the documentary “powerfully weaves the history of race relations in Charleston, the significance and impact of Mother Emanuel Church, and the hope that somehow emerges in the aftermath. Featuring intimate interviews with survivors and family members, Emanuel is a poignant story of justice and faith, love and hate, examining the healing power of forgiveness.”
The film was directed by Brian Ivie, produced by John Shepherd, Mike Wildt, and Dimas Salaberrios, and co-Produced by Mariska Hargitay.
