Kartemquin mourns the loss of Mike Gray

We mourn the loss of a good friend and colleague, Mike Gray. He was an important filmmaker, author and leader in the documentary world.

"I met Mike at the beginning of my career and we remained close for the next 50 years. His seminal film, The Murder of Fred Hampton, produced by The Film Group, remains as important today as it ever was," Kartemquin Founder and Artistic Director Gordon Quinn remarked, "Mike never lost his passion for the truth, politics, and making change. He will be missed."

Mike Gray passed away yesterday in Los Angeles. Visit his website to learn more about his legacy, and Media Burn to watch full online versions of his films.
