Sandra Bland’s death and her family’s search for answers propel HBO’s ‘Say Her Name’

“When we talked to the family and asked whether they would be willing to make a documentary, Cannon Lambert looked at me and said, ‘If it turns out that we can’t prove that Sandy was murdered, do you still think you have a film worth making?’ I said, ‘Absolutely.’ She never should have been arrested in the first place. She never should have been jailed,” says Heilbroner, a former Manhattan prosecutor. “Whether someone went in there and killed her or whether she was ultimately driven to suicide, the system lynched her.”
