Film Screening: Wrong Man
May 15, 2018
STARZ, in partnership with the March on Washington Film Festival & NYU DC, presented an exclusive, preview screening of the first episode of the upcoming documentary-series "Wrong Man."
In “Wrong Man,” a series by Academy Award-nominated and Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost Trilogy), a team of esteemed experts including a renowned civil rights attorney, a former prosecutor, a retired NCIS investigator, and a member of Detroit’s elite Homicide Task Force re-investigate the cases of three inmates who have been locked up for decades and claim they’re innocent. The verité series follows investigators into prisons and to the scene of the crimes to crack open the cases, as they hunt for new evidence, track down witnesses and talk to often-reluctant law-enforcement, looking beyond guilt and innocence to expose the flaws in our criminal justice system.
The evening included a brief reception and screening, followed by a conversation with Executive Producer Erica Sashin, Producer Nell Constantinople, and the cast: Ron Kuby, Joe Kennedy, Sue-Ann Robinson, and Ira Todd. The conversation was moderated by Phillip Goff, Ph. D.
