David & Me (2014) Trailer
Trailer for David & Me.
The Thin Blue Line influenced a generation of filmmakers to use documentary methods to free those imprisoned for crimes they didn’t commit. Filmmaker Ray Klonsky wasn’t alive when 16-year-old Brooklyn teenager David McCallum was arrested for the kidnapping, robbery and murder of Nathan Blenner. David and friend Willie Stuckey were convicted and sentenced to 25 years to life in prison for those crimes. Their conviction in 1985 lacked physical evidence and was based on coerced testimonies and a questionable police investigation. Ray’s father introduced his troubled teenager to David, and after hearing his story, Ray vowed to find the evidence that would vindicate his friend while creating a documentary of his process. The emotional rollercoaster of parole hearings and new investigative discoveries leads to dramatic moments surrounding David’s potential release. Ray’s determination, along with help from Rubin "Hurricane" Carter, makes this an emotional story about friendship, perseverance and an unwavering belief in justice.
