January 31, 2015 – 3 1/2 Minutes, the story of Jordan Davis’ murder, won the Documentary Special Jury Award for Social Impact at the Sundance Film Festival.

Here is what Lucia McBath, Jordan’s mother, said when accepting the award:
“I always wanted Jordan’s life to mean something, and I prayed many prayers, many nights, for that. But I never would have imagined that Jordan’s life—as well as his death—would mean so much to so many people and would change the consciousness and prick the souls of our nation. Thank you.”

January 31, 2015 – Jordan Davis Documentary ‘3 1/2 Minutes’ Heading to HBO.  This news was reported by Rolling Stone and many other major outlets.  “When we started this journey, our aim was make sure that Jordan’s story was not going to be forgotten, that he would not become a statistic in an increasingly violent world,” Director Marc Silver said in a statement. “We are now certain that Jordan’s story will reach the widest, most diverse audience possible.”

“I am grieved that these continuing stories are everyday matters swept away,” HBO Documentary Films president Sheila Nevins said in a statement. “By bringing this powerful film to HBO audiences, we hope to elevate the national conversation around these tragic issues.”

HBO plans to air the film this fall, after the documentary’s theatrical release.
