The Making of 'Who Killed Colin Roach': Experiences

by Isaac Julien

Independent Video, Nov. 1983, no. 23 & 24

A first-person account of the motivation for and experience behind the making of Who Killed Colin Roach. "It was because of the systematic distortion of the events surrounding Colin Roach's death, and the police's reaction to the demonstrations organized by the RFSC, where several people were arrested and later jailed, that I decided to document on video, from a black point of view, a black family's and people's struggle against the State."
