    Director, producer Tommy Oliver talks with Jesus Figueroa, @ThisFunktional of ThisFunktional.com, about HBO’s “40 Years a Prisoner.”


    Oliver talks about what made him want to take on the task of telling this story, telling a history story in a way that isn’t a history story, and the friendship that developed with Mife Africa, Jr.


    Feature documentary 40 YEARS A PRISONER chronicles one of the most controversial shootouts in American history: the 1978 police raid on the radical, back-to-nature group MOVE by the Philadelphia Police Department. Using eyewitness accounts and archival footage of the not widely known confrontation, the film illuminates the story of a city grappling with racial tension and police brutality with alarming topicality and modern-day relevance. Mike Africa Jr., the son of two MOVE members imprisoned for the death of a police officer that day, has committed his life to finding out the truth about what really happened and fighting for the release of the parents that he has only ever known through prison walls.


    40 YEARS A PRISONER
    Debuts December 8 on HBO, HBO Max
