Mumia Abu-Jamal speaks from behind prison walls.
Produced and Directed by John Edginton
Co-Produced by Sarah Teale
America's most "celebrated" death row inmate, Mumia Abu-Jamal, speaks for the first time behind prison walls in Mumia Abu-Jamal: A Case for Reasonable Doubt? Mumia was convicted and sentenced to death for the December 9, 1981 murder of Daniel Faulkner, a 25 year-old white Philadelphia policeman. His conviction has been protested by a number of activists and celebrities who call him a political prisoner because of the perceived irregularities in both the evidence and the conduct of his trial. Yet, Abu-Jamal was found shot four feet from the fallen officer that night and has kept silent for 15 years, never giving an explanation, only voicing his innocence. Does Mumia Abu-Jamal have a case for reasonable doubt?
