New trailer for Mumia Abu-Jamal documentary

For this clip, filmmaker Tigre Hill focuses on Officer Daniel Faulkner's widow.

On the eve of the 28th anniversary of the slaying of Police Officer Daniel Faulkner, filmmaker Tigre Hill has unleashed a second trailer for his documentary The Barrel of a Gun.

This trailer -- to be posted to the film's Web site tomorrow but available below -- focuses on Faulker and his widow's fight to preserve justice for her husband.

Onetime Philly radio reporter Mumia Abu-Jamal was convicted of the killing after a car stop at 13th and Locust Streets.

Hill says the film will premiere sometime in February. Last month, Hill announced that the film was being re-edited to accommodate a "rare new insight" about the case.
