Stephen: The Murder That Changed a Nation


On 22 1993, a black teenager, Stephen Lawrence, was brutally murdered at a bus stop by a group of white youths in an unprovoked attack.

Due to failures in the police investigation, the killers walked free. 25 years later, acclaimed filmmakers Asif Kapadia and James Gay-Rees tell the story behind a case that became one of the highest profile racial killings in UK history, charting Stephen’s parents’ struggle for justice, through all its twists and turns, dramatic interventions from Nelson Mandela and the Daily Mail, revelations of institutional racism in the police and suspicions of corruption.
