Wednesday, November 16 at 7:30 pm | Members $10 | Public $15 | Includes Receeption

An intimate exploration of the circumstances surrounding the incarceration of Native American activist Leonard Peltier, convicted of murder, with commentary from those involved, including Peltier himself, and lawyer, William Kunstler.

Native American activist Leonard Peltier has spent over 40 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Prosecutors and federal agents manufactured evidence against him (including the so-called “murder weapon”); hid proof of his innocence; presented false testimony obtained through torturous interrogation techniques; ignored court orders; and lied to the jury. People are commonly set free due to a single constitutional violation, but Peltier—innocent and faced with a staggering number of constitutional violations—has yet to receive equal justice. (USA, 1992, 85 min., English, NR, DCP | Dir. Suzie Baer)

Produced by Cindy Campbell
