Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland

The death of Sandra Bland, a politically active 28-year-old African American, galvanized activists across the country. After being arrested for a traffic violation in a small Texas town in 2015, Bland was found hanging in her cell three days later. Dashcam footage of her arrest went viral, leading to national protests. This new documentary follows the two-year case that followed, exploring questions of what really happened—and what we may learn from her tragedy. (2018, dir. Kate Davis and David Heilbroner, 103 min.)
