Director Stephen Vittoria talks with Mumia Abu-Jamal on the "Newark Situation"

On April 16th Newark's only movie theater, Cityplex-12, the ownership of which includes Shaquille O'Neal and Boraie Development, a theater that symbolizes the redevelopment of Newark and which has been championed by Mayor Cory Booker, suddenly cancelled our film about Mumia Abu-Jamal, pulling it from their schedule.

With this act they effectively blocked Newark citizens from seeing the film and witnessing Mumia's powerful story.

Mumia speaks from SCI Mahanoy with Stephen Vittoria, director of "Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary", about the broader implications of this move by the ownership of Cityplex12.
