Emmett Till’s cousin Deborah Watts speaks candidly about the BAFTA-nominated film Till, which is in cinemas and also available on digital download. Anna Smith also speaks to writer Ellen E Jones about this powerful film directed by Chinonye Chukwu. It tells the true story of Mamie Till-Bradley, whose 14-year-old son Emmett was brutally murdered in 1955. The film follows her fight for justice and features an incredible performance from Danielle Deadwyler, who has been nominated for Leading Actress at the BAFTAs. We are also happy that Till has been nominated at the Girls On Film Awards, for Best Feature sponsored by EON Productions.
