The Blood is at the Doorstep
A Documentary Screening and Discussion
In 2014, in broad daylight in downtown Milwaukee, an officer responding to a complaint approached Dontre Hamilton, an unarmed black man with paranoid schizophrenia who was resting in a park. Minutes later, Dontre was shot 14 times and died. Erik Ljung‘s urgent documentary, The Blood is at the Doorstep, chronicles that fatal police shooting, and the tireless efforts of his family as they seek answers. A discussion with Ljung and two members of the Hamilton family will follow the film screening.
