Frankie Faison in Final Trailer for 'The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain'
"You are not coming into my home!" Gravitas Ventures / Voltage Pictures have released one final official trailer for the film titled The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain, telling the real story of the killing of Kenneth Chamberlain Sr. This premiered at both the Oxford Film Festival and American Black Film Festival last year. After a short delay, it's now opening in select theaters + on VOD starting today (November 19th). Based on the true events that led to the death of Mr. Chamberlain, an elderly African American veteran with bipolar disorder, who was killed by police officers during what was supposed to be a routine wellness check. This stars Frankie Faison as Kenneth Chamberlain Sr., with Steve O'Connell, Enrico Natale, Anika Noni Rose, and LaRoyce Hawkins. I'm glad they're making films to tell the true story of what happened and how bad this whole incident is, I really hope it actually makes a difference and encourages real change.
