The Blood is at the Doorstep

Crew
Directed by Erik Ljung


After Dontre Hamilton, a black, unarmed man diagnosed with schizophrenia, was shot 14 times and killed by police in Milwaukee, his family embarks on a quest for answers, justice, and reform as the investigation unfolds.

 Filmed over the course of three years in the direct aftermath of Dontre's death, this intimate verite documentary follows his family as they channel their grief into community organizing in an attempt to reset the narrative. Offering a painfully realistic glimpse inside a movement born out of tragedy in what the Hollywood Reporter calls "An urgent report from the front lines of an American crisis."

Reviews

“a loud, boisterous call to action.”

“subversively tackles the prickly war of public perception”

“finds hope within terrible circumstances, and strength within heartbreak” **Critics Pick**

“a rich piece of cinema verite.”
