U.S. Documentary; 107 minutes.
A family tragedy, stemming from a case of injustice, is recounted in the most personal terms possible in "Strong Island," a powerful documentary from director Yance Ford.
Ford lays out photos from her family's albums to tell the story of the Ford family. William Ford and Barbara Dunmore met as kids in South Carolina, fell in love in high school, got married and moved to New York. They lived in a Brooklyn apartment, until the family grew — three children: William Jr., Yance and Lauren — and moved into a house in Central Islip, on Long Island.
