Winner of both the Grand Jury and Audience awards at Sundance, Fruitvale Station is based on true events surrounding the devastating and politically charged murder of an unarmed black man Oscar Grant by Bart Station police in the Bay Area in 2009. The film is unfortunately more crucial than ever, given the numerous failures of justice in 2014 and the resulting protest movement which, like the film's agenda as well, was built around the phrase "black lives matter." Coogler's focus is on putting a human face on what can become a wider political tragedy, and the film's real focus is less on the events of the murder than it is a portrait of a young black man in Oakland, struggling to keep himself and his family afloat. Devoid of histrionics and committed to staying as close to the real person as dramatically possible, the film is a modest, naturalistic portrait.
Movie is free. Space is limited.
