  • Picrow Director Marc Silver Premieres His Documentary 3½ Minutes at Sundance Film Festival
  • Following the success of his first feature length film, Who is Dayani Cristal? which won the Cinematography Award: World Cinema Documentary at the Sundance Festival 2013 and the Amnesty International Best Documentary award 2014, Marc Silver premieres his new documentary 3½ Minutes at the Sundance Film Festival 2015.

    In Marc’s words, the film “dissects the shooting death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis, the aftermath of this systemic tragedy and contradictions within the American criminal justice system.” His intimate filmmaking approach to humanizing each character will surely capture the attention of festivalgoers and the subject matter will no doubt continue this important social discourse.
