HRIFF PRESENTS: "Wisper"
Date: Feb 17th - Regal Cinemas L.A. LIVE 14
Wisper is the true story of the murder of an upper middle-class African American family in Northern N.J. In the summer of 2016, three children and their mother were found shot to death in their large suburban home in a close, but integrated neighborhood bordering on NYC. They were discovered by father and husband Josiah Wisper – a brash businessman who owned bars, restaurants, stores and real estate, in Harlem, New York. Wisper immediately became the prime suspect in the case, or what is more commonly known as “A Person of Interest”.Wisper was eventually ruled out as a suspect by police and law enforcement officials, but never in the eyes of those in the Harlem community – his relatives, friends, and people he had known for nearly half his life. Josiah quickly embarks on a search to find out who massacred his family. His personal (and original) video recordings, journals and diaries take us to family, friends, police precincts, newspapers drug dens, gun stores and street-gang hangouts – all in the hope of piecing together the clues needed to solve this shocking and tragic crime.
