Duration: 21 mins
This new documentary explores the harrowing true story of David Oluwale, a Nigerian immigrant who was chased into the River Aire by Leeds Police in 1969.
A landmark case followed in 1971 where two police officers were convicted of assault by a jury, having been directed to acquit them of manslaughter.
According to Leeds Civic Trust, this was the first successful prosecution of British police officers for the involvement in the death of a black person.
Our Thu 20 Apr, 12pm screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Jeremiah Quinn.
Screening as part of REAL Documentary Festival.
