TILL will be released in select theaters beginning this Friday and everywhere on October 28th. Check out photos of the Los Angeles premiere now!

Stars Danielle Deadwyler, Jalyn Hall, Frankie Faison, Sean Patrick Thomas, John Douglas Thompson, and more celebrated the legacy of Emmett Till and Mamie Till-Mobley alongside TILL filmmakers Chinonye Chukwu (director/co-writer), Keith Beauchamp (producer/co-writer), Barbara Broccoli (producer), and Michael Reilly (producer/co-writer).

Most importantly, also in attendance were the family of Emmett Till including Deborah Watts (cousin of Emmett Till and co-founder of the Emmett Till Legacy Foundation) as well as special honored guest Myrlie Evers-Williams (Civil Rights activist and wife of Medgar Evers).

Till is a profoundly emotional and cinematic film about the true story of Mamie Till-Mobley's relentless pursuit of justice for her 14 year old son, Emmett Till, who, in 1955, was lynched while visiting his cousins in Mississippi. In Mamie's poignant journey of grief turned to action, we see the universal power of a mother's ability to change the world.
