My Name Is Myeisha

A powerful, thoughtful and haunting film based on a stage production that dramatises a 1998 US police shooting. The film imagines teen Myeisha’s thoughts in the moments before she is shot 12 times by police while dozing in her car. Rhaechyl Walker mesmerises as the complex Myeisha. The film cleverly utilises music, poetry and drama in seeking to represent the many layers of this young woman, while never eulogising her. The tragic story of a black life lost and a contemplation of what might have been.
