My Name Is Myeisha (2018) REVIEW – A Painful Story Of A Life Cut Short
By Andrea Thompson
The film My Name Is Myeisha tells a far too familiar story, but its uniqueness lies in its refusal to tell it in a familiar way. Based on the play Dreamscape, it is itself based on the story of 19-year-old Tyisha Miller, who was gunned down by police in 1998. However, My Name Is Myeisha doesn’t so much try to recount her life as to get a sense of the magnitude of what was lost that night.
