The Blood is at the Doorstep is a story about one family’s quest for answers, justice, and reform after Dontre Hamilton is shot 14 times and killed by a Milwaukee Police Officer responding to a non-emergency wellness check. Filmed over the course of three years in the direct aftermath of Dontre’s death, this intimate verite documentary follows his family as they channel their grief into community organizing in an attempt to reset the narrative. Offering a painfully realistic glimpse inside a movement born out of tragedy in what the Hollywood Reporter calls “a clear-eyed film that finds hope within terrible circumstances, and strength within heartbreak.” RECENT PRESS: New York Times – Going Hyperlocal, Filmmakers Explore the Pain of Racism: IDA Documentary Magazine – Whose Story?

And it’s simultaneously astounding to see the strength and the genius of people who insist on coming together, continuing to love and support each other in a world where such acts put them at such great risk.” The Hollywood Reporter: “An urgent report from the frontlines of an American Crisis”: Dir: Erik Ljung Editor: Michael T.
