How Yance Ford’s historic ‘Strong Island’ Oscar nomination is a victory for more than trans filmmakers

“Strong Island,” which won a special jury prize at Sundance last year where it premiered, tells the story of how Ford’s family was affected by the April 1992 killing of his brother William, then a 24-year-old teacher, by a white 19-year-old mechanic. William was unarmed. The film charts Ford’s journey to reconnect with the Long Island, N.Y., officers and prosecutors involved in his brother’s case and discover how the grand jury could deem the shooting justifiable.
