“Long Distance Revolutionary is a blistering indictment of institutionalized racism and also a sensitive picture of a fascinating human being.” –– Jamie Rich, The Oregonian
The acclaimed feature documentary Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary, which tells the revolutionary story of one of this country’s most vibrant and vital journalists, has successfully toured the country theatrically for four months. We know the life and work of Abu-Jamal speaks to the values of our listeners and this film delivers both an intimate portrait of a remarkable man, while contextualizing the relevance of his life and work in terms of constitutional freedoms and the power of revolutionary dissent.

“Fascinating and persuasive. Vittoria creates a context that suggests how easily innocents could be railroaded. The result is not unlike Oliver Stone’s rewrite of U.S. history.” — John Hartl, Seattle Times



Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary eschews Abu-Jamal’s case in order to focus on the greater implications of his career as a journalist before, during, and after Death Row. But this DVD includes Manufacturing Guilt, an exclusive – and explosive – new short film on Abu-Jamal’s case. A 25 minute distillation of the complex, convoluted, and ultimately corrupt case against Abu-Jamal, Manufacturing Guilt is unequivocal in its assertion of Abu-Jamal’s innocence.


“MUMIA: Long Distance Revolutionary is a powerful indictment of the hypocrisy in the American dream and is a must-see for any and all who are concerned with upholding the constitutional rights of all Americans.”

— Alex Simon, Huffington Post

Producer/Director Stephen Vittoria is the creative and intellectual force behind Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary and Manufacturing Guilt.

A film like Mumia: Long Distance Revolutionary doesn’t come around often. Take this opportunity to give away a premium to your audience that will have them inspired and excited to donate.
