Review

voices are not often raised in “sixteen pictures.” but you may experience anger coursing through this film, and it says some distance greater than loud phrases may want to.

the documentary, directed by richard rowley, recounts the killing of laquan mcdonald, a 17-12 months-antique black guy, in 2014. he become keeping a knife at the same time as strolling in a avenue and was shot by a white chicago police officer — a reaction that became before everything deemed justified by way of the government.

but a video of the event wildly contradicted preliminary money owed, and investigations refuted early police reviews, leading to accusations of a cowl-up. protests and demonstrations accompanied; the police superintendent changed into later fired, and the mayor, rahm emanuel, declined to run for re-election. the resulting trial of jason van dyke, the officer who shot mcdonald, shook the metropolis.

rowley interviews activists, witnesses, jurors and police representatives. their frustrations could be smooth to inflame, but the director and his team listen carefully to what's being said, and permit time for the ones interviewed to work through their thoughts.

to be sure, the case has been drastically blanketed within the media, leaving this film to feature largely as a summary of the capturing and the trial. and at instances the pacing veers towards the overly deliberate with too many gradual-shifting scenes of the chicago skyline and so on.

still, “sixteen shots” stays precious as a record of beyond occasions that keep sway over the existing. laquan’s taking pictures is “a tale on the middle of our racial nightmare on this united states,” one journalist says at the movie’s end. “i'd pass so far as to say it’s a count of lifestyles and loss of life.
