‘The Hate U Give’ sheds light on police brutality

The film holds its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, with actors hoping it will create awareness about how police brutality affects black communities.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA (REUTERS / 20TH CENTURY FOX) – ‘The Hate U Give’ is based on the 2017 young adult novel of the same name and tells the story of Starr, a black teenager, whose life is changed when she witnesses the killing of her childhood best friend by a white police officer. The film follows scores of police shootings in the United States in recent years which have given rise to the Black Lives Matter movement. Actress Amandla Stenberg, who plays Starr, said she hoped the film would change the perspective of Americans. The cast includes KJ Apa, Regina Hall, Anthony Mackie, Issa Rae and Disney actress Sabrina Carpenter, who said the film packs a powerful punch. ‘The Hate U Give’ goes on release in North America on October 19.
