Solid Blue Online Release
Two and a half years ago, we completed a short documentary, Solid Blue, that outlines the story behind the assassination of Seattle Police Officer, Timothy Q. Brenton, and how his death inspired his fellow officers to create a bagpipes and drums band in his honor. On Friday, July 24, 2015 (yesterday), his murderer, Christopher Monfort, was sentenced to life in prison after a lengthy trial.
After six years, this dramatic story has unfolded before our eyes, another example of how the clashes between police and citizens continue to plague our country. As this particular chapter reaches an end, we felt it only right to release the film online. After a strong national festival run, we are glad to share the project with you. Please share it, and we hope you find some inspiration in this small, human glimpse into a complicated situation.
