Manufacturing Guilt

The Labor Action Committee is proud to present a short film by Stephen Vittoria, writer/director of “Mumia – Long Distance Revolutionary,” Keith Cook, Mumia Abu-Jamal’s older brother and Rachel Wolkenstein, lawyer for Mumia, and legal consultant on this film. Co-produced by Noelle Hanrahan of Prison Radio.

“Manufacturing Guilt” is a riveting narrative description, with graphics, of how Mumia was framed and sent to death row for a crime he didn’t commit.

“’Manufacturing Guilt’ highlights truth. Everybody who has a heart for justice, passion for truth, and concern for the innocent should see this film.” – Keith Cook (Mumia’s eldest brother)

“’Manufacturing Guilt’ is a chilling and vital inside view of what happened to my beloved father Mumia Abu-Jamal on that forsaken night that forever changed his life—and ours.” – Jamal Hart (Mumia’s oldest son)
