"Those Who Fight: A Call to Action": 2014 short film from News2Share

Those Who Fight: A Call to Action” (2014) is a five-minute short film about the death of an inmate in a prison in Burlington, NJ, directed by Ford Fischer and Trey Yingst from News2Share, a media company that the directors formed while undergraduates at American University in Washington DC.

The homeless person was Robert Taylor, 74, who had been homeless.

The film has interviews (it starts with another previous inmate, who seems pretty intact) and a court hearing.

The film could be compared to some work by Andrew Jenks on wrongful conviction issues (like “Dream/Killer”)
