27 January – 2 February,  2023

Directed by Chinonye Chukwu (Clemency), Till tells the heartbreaking true story of the historic lynching of 14-year-old Emmett Till (Jalyn Hall) — for whistling at a white woman in Money, Mississippi in 1955 — through the eyes of his mother Mamie Till-Mobley (Danielle Deadwyler). Following Emmet’s death, Mamie insisted the world witness the horror of what happened to her son by holding an open casket funeral, as well as giving Jet Magazine the rights to publish the images of her son’s body which caused the lynching to gain worldwide notoriety.

A mother’s audacity became a lightning rod in the Civil Rights Movement and propelled her to reluctantly become an outspoken activist for the NAACP advocating for social justice and education.
