The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson
Directed by David France
USA, Documentary, 105 minutes

Marsha P. Johnson was a leading transgender activist in the 1980s: present at the Stonewall Riots alongside Sylvia Rivera. Her death rocked the New York LGBT activist scene, with many of her peers skeptical of the NYPD’s ruling that she committed suicide. In this gripping documentary, we follow activist Victoria Cruz as she tries to solve the mystery of Marcia’s death. David France, the director of How to Survive a Plague, brings us this riveting film that’s part tribute, part whodunit, and part call-to-action.
