Candyman (2020) -  “The origins of Candyman” short.

CANDYMAN, at the intersection of white violence and black pain, is about unwilling martyrs. The people they were, the symbols we turn them into, the monsters we are told they must have been.

This is the history I should have learned. Who kills a child, even for murder. Post

I recognized that story as soon as I saw the electric chair. It’s so similar to what happened to Emmet Till who was the same age. Only Till didn’t even get a trial, he was lynched by a group of random white men for allegedly catcalling a white woman. And it came out years later that the woman lied. Sometimes looking at my own history for too long hurts. Post

George Stinney Jr's story is so sad. The thing he was sent to death for was the murder of two girls, which he was found innocent for 70 years later. He couldn't fit in the straps, they had to tie it to his wrists and ankles, and they had to shock him 3 times because they were unable to secure the electrodes correctly. Also, its literally impossible he committed the crime. The murder weapon weighed 19 kilograms, so it was impossible for him to lift it, let alone hit two girls in the head. As he... Post

The man who gets beaten doesn't seem to be any case in particular. But the boy was George Stinney Jr., falsely convicted for a double murder in 1944 when he was 14 in a trial that only lasted 10 minutes, and executed less than 3 months later. One thing the animation omitted that would have made it even more painful is that he was too small to be fitted into the electric chair. He had to sit on the bible in this picture. His conviction wasn't thrown out until 2014. He holds the unfortunate record... Post

This legit made me both tear up and freak out. The music, the puppets, it’s so simplistic yet so clear of what happens and the uncanny valley given by the shadow of the hand that’s visible sometimes in the shot, gives an unnerving feeling of “we as the human kind are allowing all of this, we as humans are allowing these atrocities to happen to our own fellows”. I’m not familiar with the story of Candyman, but this video alone left me with goosebumps and a sunken heart. Words can’t express my... Post
