The creators of Ferguson Cover-Up, a documentary that will reveal the untold story of Michael Brown's case, have launched a fundraiser for the film that will feature interviews with the slain teen's family.

The director of the documentary is Jason Pollock, who visited Ferguson and spent time with the family to discuss his plans for his project before launching the fundraising campaign.

"My son died a year ago now, and there are still many unanswered questions about his death," Brown's father, Michael Brown Sr., said in a statement. "We applaud Mr. Pollock for taking up this case to bring some justice to my son’s name. We encourage everyone to watch this powerful trailer and support this Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign."

Those who donate to the campaign may receive perks such as T-shirts featuring a drawing of Brown with empowering slogans such as "Innocent," "Student" and "Say His Name."

"This film will blow the roof off the current narrative which America and the globe have been fed around Ferguson," the fundraiser page reads. "People need to get the truth about this international story, and this film will be the counter-narrative that everyone needs to hear."

A St. Louis County grand jury decided not to indict Officer Darren Wilson in the killing of Brown on November 24. The Department of Justice cleared Wilson of civil rights charges in March. The Ferguson police department was exposed for its racial bias in a report, however.
