The Obituary of Tunde Johnson is an American drama film, directed by Ali LeRoi and released in 2019. The film stars Steven Silver as Tunde Johnson, a gay African-American teenager who is trapped in a time loop that forces him to repeatedly relive the day of his fatal, racially motivated shooting by a police officer.The film also stars Nicola Peltz as Marley Meyers, Tunde's longtime friend; Spencer Neville as Soren O'Connor, a bisexual classmate who is secretly dating both Tunde and Marley in a love triangle; David James Elliott as Soren's father Alfred; and Sammi Rotibi and Tembi Locke as Tunde's parents Ade and Yomi.
