Behind These Walls: Mumia Abu-jamal and the Long Struggle For Freedom

On August 17, 1995, Mumia Abu-Jamal, journalist and former Black Panther Party Member was scheduled to be executed. His case--he is one of 3,000 death row inmates in the US--has raised international attention and protest. The execution warrant was stayed, however, Governor Ridge of Pennsylvania immediately announced his plans to sign a new death warrant as soon as legally possible. This film documents Mumia-Abu-Jamal's long struggle for a new trial. It explores the history of his trial and subsequent hearings and meticulously tells the story of this famous case through interviews with Abu-Jamal himself, the attorneys, family members and others involved in the story of one of the U.S.'s most controversial political prisoners.
