Teen time travel movies never felt so relevant. See You Yesterday, which is directed by Spike Lee protégé Stefon Bristol, gives a time travel twist to a Black Lives Matter story, following two teenagers who build a time machine to go back in time and save one of their brothers from being tragically gunned down by a cop.
