First Trailer for Netflix's 'The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson' Doc

Written by  FirstShowing

"Don't play detective yourself…" Netflix has debuted an official trailer for a documentary titled The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson, the latest film from the director of the Academy Award-nominated How to Survive a Plague.

David France's new doc is about a civil rights activist named Marsha P. Johnson. She was found dead in the Hudson River in 1992, though there was no investigation because the NYPD ruled it a suicide. Johnson was the "beloved, self-described 'street queen' of NY's gay ghetto" who fought for many great human rights changes back in the 1970s. The doc re-examines her death and dives deeper into what might've happened, spending time with Marsha's old friend and fellow activist Victoria Cruz. After being blown away by How to Survive a Plague, I'll watch anything by David France. This looks very compelling.
