All-access Kwame Kilpatrick documentary comes out Friday

Two years after Kwame Kilpatrick was sentenced to prison, a documentary on him is finally ready.

In one scene from “KMK: A Documentary of Kwame Kilpatrick”, the viewer is riding along with him after leaving prison.

“I’m calling my wife, first phone call, first phone call,” Kilpatrick said. “Wow. I can’t believe it, until we get out of Jackson.

“‘Hey baby, what’s going on?’”

A whole lot of folks watched as Kilpatrick left Jackson Prison back in 2011. But only two men were in the former mayor’s vehicle with their cameras rolling.

“The chopper is on us, so we got the eye in the sky,” Kilpatrick said during his ride in the documentary. “We’re rolling down I-94, this is very interesting, this understated release. The choppers and all the press corps were out there. Were they broadcasting live out there?”

The men behind the documentary are Tim and Tobias Smith, a father and son filmmaking team … click here for more details.
