Box Office Open At Regal Cinema On Main Street Sarasota

36 Seconds: Portrait of a Hate Crime

Florida Premiere. In 2015, three Muslim-American students were shot point-blank while eating dinner in their home in Chapel Hill, NC. In 36 Seconds: Portrait of a Hate Crime, filmmaker Tarek Albaba makes a moving, impassioned case for justice for these innocents and for their community. The film charts the victims’ families’ agonizing pivot from trauma to advocacy as they struggle to prevent their loved ones’ deaths from being dismissed as the result of a random parking dispute. They courageously speak the truth about the hate crime that has destroyed their lives, about the overt and insidious ways racism plays out in our society and about the need to reform a hate crime system that is broken. This is a story about grace and the will to fight for the truth in the worst of circumstances.
