"Justice on Trial: Mumia Abu Jamal" L.A. PREMIERE Dec. 5


On Nov. 9 a Federal court in Philadelphia again took up the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal,
journalist, author and former member of the Black Panther Party currently on death
row. The results of that hearing, which will determine if Mumia is executed or gets
life imprisonment, have not been decided YET. Attorney Robert Bryan says that Mumia
is now "in the greatest danger since his 1981 arrest."

Dec. 9 is the 29th anniversary of the night Mumia was accused of murdering a white
policeman. He has always affirmed his innocence. This new film, "Justice on Trial:
The Case of Mumia Abu-Jamal," fairly presents the arguments made by Mumia's
supporters alongside the prosecution's arguments and interviews with others
advocating Mumia's execution. The film's featured interviews include press
photographer Pedro Polakoff, whose newly discovered crime scene photos expose police
manipulation of evidence.
