Additional footage from Ava DuVernay’s new Netflix limited series When They See Us has been released, adding to the gripping layers of emotion. This stirring teaser will fill in more of the lives of the Central Park 5 as they go through one of recent history’s most terrible racial injustices—when these five young men of color were wrongly charged with rape.
The series tells their story, from their arrest and conviction, through their sentences, to their ultimate release many years too late. This trailer focuses on the later years as they try to reintegrate into society and get their lives back on track. When They See Us will be a difficult series to watch but worth every minute of your time—to remind us all why such a miscarriage of justice can never happen again.
When They See Us arrives on Netflix on May 31st. Watch the new trailer below:
