HBO Secures Rights To '3 1/2 Minutes'

HBO has secured rights to the independent film 3 ½ minutes, the network announced during the Sundance Film Festival.

The movie, directed by Marc Silver (Who Is Dayani Cristal?), depicts the story of the 2012 shooting death of black teenager Jordan Davis, said network officials.

The movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last week.

“I am grieved that these continuing stories are everyday matters swept away,” said Sheila Nevins, President of HBO Documentary Films in a statement. “By bringing this powerful film to HBO audiences, we hope to elevate the national conversation around these tragic issues.”
