this review is from: In His Own Home (ON DEMAND)

In His Own Home documents the attempted murder of a handicapped black graduate student armed with a table leg by a white campus police officer with an assault rifle. It’s a succinct description of racism and state violence in the United States. Its use of historical context, community voices, and official reactions provides ideal teaching material, especially today: in just the past week, police used an assault rifle to shoot an unarmed black care worker who was laying down with his hands in the air, and Oklahoma City police requested permission to carry personally-owned assault rifles on duty.

The intersection between race, culture nation of origin and mental illness are under-discussed and poorly understood in today's society. Malini Johar Schueller presents an important struggle for survival undertaken by Kofi Adu-Brempong. If we do not protect the worst off in our society we are not living up to being truly human, and we must remember the lessons of history when we consider how the disabled are treated in our society.

Well worth watching and sharing. This brief documentary is strong in its own right, and it works particularly well in (higher) educational contexts. It challenges students to consider crucial, far-reaching issues through the lens of a particular, local story. It also offers a fascinating case study of activist/academic documentary filmmaking.
