Justice on Trial: The Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal, a new documentary by Big Noise Films, lays out the facts of the case, looks at recently discovered photographs of the crime scene and speaks to both sides of the case in order to understand the ongoing controversy around the world's best-known death row inmate.

The film suggests that the case of Abu-Jamal stands as a primer for understanding race and the criminal justice system: its many violations including judicial misconduct, discrimination in jury selection, and police corruption and tampering with evidence to obtain a conviction account for the exponential and disproportionate incarceration of African Americans and Latinos in the United States over the last 30 years.

This is a film for people who need an update on the facts and for those who need an introduction to the case.
