Justice Denied: The Hurricane Carter Story | 1998
Documentary about boxer Hurricane Carter, whose career came to an end in 1966 when he was arrested and convicted along with acquaintance John Artis for a triple murder that both men denied committing. Their case would become one of the longest and most litigated in U.S. history. The defiant inmate attracted support from celebrities like boxer Muhammad Ali and rock star Bob Dylan. But Carter would eventually credit an unlikely friendship with a 16-year-old boy named Lazarus "Lesra" Martin with opening the door to his freedom.
