On February 8th, 2014 director Dylan Avery attended a rally in Hollywood for Kelly Thomas, a homeless man that was beat to death by 6 police officers.

As the rally was winding down, a man named Ruben asked Dylan if he’d ever heard of a kid named Bobby Henning.

Black and Blue is what followed.

Shot over 2 years in multiple cities across the country, Black and Blue features not only family members of people killed by the police and people whose rights were violated as they fight for justice, but the film also features former and retired law enforcement officers who find themselves in the middle of a national movement.
