My Name Is Myeisha

 

USA | 2018 | 84 Min | Dir. Gus Krieger
Friday, August 24 | 7:05PM | North Bend Theatre

 

A bold and visionary musical unlike anything on screen today, Gus Krieger’s MY NAME IS MYEISHA blends hip-hop, beat-boxing, dance and spoken word lyricism to tell the heartbreaking story of a teenage girl killed by police while she sat unconscious locked in a car. Inspired by the tragic police shooting of 19-year-old Tyisha Miller in 1998 and adapted from DREAMSCAPE, Rickerby Hinds play about that same incident, the film paints a vivid picture of a young woman only at the beginning of her life with hopes, dreams and people who loved her. An urgent and powerful reminder that every victim is more than a statistic, it’s essential filmmaking in a dynamic and energetic combination of storytelling methods precisely executed from beginning to end.
