The documentary marks the 40th anniversary of Davis’ acquittal on charges of murder, kidnapping, and conspiracy. In it, Davis recounts the actions that branded her a terrorist and simultaneously spurred a worldwide movement for her freedom. The documentary was executive-produced by Will and Jada Smith.

Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter’s Roc Nation assisted with final funding.
