The official trailer for Ava Duvernay’s powerful film When They See Us is finally here!

Starring Niecy Nash, Blair Underwood, Michael K. Williams, Vera Farmiga Christopher Jackson and more, the When They See Us is four-part Netflix series is about “the Central Park Five from the perspective of the teens who were wrongly convicted of rape three decades.” In a statement released by Ava:

“In 1989, five black and brown teen boys were wrongly accused of a crime they did not commit and branded The Central Park Five, a moniker that has followed them since that time. In 2019, our series gives the five men a platform to finally raise their voices and tell their full stories.”

She adds:

“In doing so, Korey, Antron, Raymond, Kevin, and Yusef also tell the story of many young people of color unjustly ensnared in the criminal justice system. We wanted to reflect this perspective in our title, embracing the humanity of the men and not their politicized moniker.”

When They See Us will be available on Netflix May 31. Check out the clip below:
