A sports announcer once said he aimed to give his listeners a view from every seat in the house. Well, what if an event series exploring race relations in the United States and the policing of African-Americans did just that? Better yet, what if a 10-hour film was created that asked difficult questions and sparked real conversation and change? Shots Fired is that “What if?”
From Gina Prince-Bythewood (Beyond the Lights, The Secret Life of Bees, Love & Basketball) and Reggie Rock Bythewood (Notorious, New York Undercover, Get on the Bus), Shots Fired examines the dangerous aftermath of two racially charged shootings in a small southern town—providing an explosive autopsy of the American criminal justice system.
