Taking the 1998 police shooting of teenager Tyisha Miller as its starting point, My Name is Myeisha weaves a hypnotic musical, as Myeisha experiences both her past and potential futures in a dreamlike state in her dying moments. This is cinema as ferocious elegy, blending hip-hop, spoken word poetry, and dance, taking the senseless tragedy of a life cut needlessly short and turning it into a dazzling and unforgettable musical journey, a much-needed reminder that Black lives always have, and always will, matter.
