Dir. Terrence Fisher, Daniel Howard / 2004 / 22 min

While we can't currently gather in person, you can see new documentary films (or our classics!) – films you can't see elsewhere – from home via our Virtual Cinema and support DCTV.

Co-director Terrence Fisher's world has been traumatized by gun violence. In 2004, he watched his best friend get shot and killed by a police officer. The killing of this innocent teen outraged Bedford-Stuyvesant residents, but a grand jury ruled it simply a tragic accident and no indictment was issued against the officer. Fisher and his friends fought back by organizing protests and filming this documentary.

BULLETS IN THE HOOD: A BED-STUY STORY is a DCTV production, co-produced and co-directed by Terrence Fisher and Daniel Howard. Executive Producers, Mami Kuwano, Jon Alpert.
