On the evening of November 9, 2017, Chris Ballew was at a gas station in Altadena, CA. Ballew, a black man and an assistant marketing director for a firm in Southern California, exited his white Mercedes to fill the tank. The events that followed were captured on video by someone who happened to be there and happened to have a cell phone.
Christopher Ballew’s experience has now been chronicled and produced in a film by James Farr. Film maker Farr presents an in-depth interview of Ballew’s attorney, John Burton, and provides a moment-by-moment analysis of what took place on the night of November 9, 2017.
