Long Distance Revolutionary: A Journey with Mumia Abu-Jamal
(No longer in theaters)
Stephen Vittoria, Katyana Farzanrad, Noelle Hanrahan
First Run Features

The story of the controversial, charismatic, prolific, and highly influential former Black Panther—currently serving life in prison for the 1981 murder of a Philadelphia police officer— and his passionate supporters never really gets a solid grasp of its material. The result is a hagiography that crams in as many political issues and causes as possible, depriving viewers of the chance to put together any semblance of a narrative.
