Run Up

Run Up is a shot film inspired by California’s last documented lynching of a Latino. Gonzales-Day’s film is based on research he uncovered in his groundbreaking publication Lynching in the West: 1850-1935 (Duke, 2006) which shed new light on the Lynching of Latinos, Native American, and Asians in the American West. Directed by Andrew Hines.

It was also the central element of the exhibition Run Up at Luis De Jesus Los Angeles which sought to draw parallels between events surrounding the police shooting of Michael Brown, and a 1920 California triple lynching case involving local police.
