Steph Curry and Viola Davis Executive Producing Documentary on Emanuel Shooting
NBA player Steph Curry has teamed up with Viola Davis to executive produce a documentary about the 2015 Charleston church massacre that left nine people dead at the hands of 21-year-old white supremacist, Dylann Roof. The documentary, Emmanuel, has already been made and premiered in May at the Bentonville Film Festival. It features interviews with survivors of the shooting, as well as members of the 10 affected families. “Emanuel is an incredibly powerful film and we’re honored to come on board as executive producers,” Curry said in a statement. “The documentary highlights how a horrible tragedy can bring a community together, and spreads an important message about the power of forgiveness. Stories like this are the reason we created Unanimous and entered the entertainment space. I hope the film inspires others like it does me.” Roof was sentenced to death in 2017. More here.
