Trials of Darryl Hunt

This week is your chance to see The Trials of Darryl Hunt, a documentary about a man who was wrongfully convicted and spent twenty years in prison. It's showing July 27 - August 2, Fri - Thurs at 7 & 9:15 PM (plus Sat & Sun at 3 & 5 PM) at the Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave. at Pike on Capitol Hill, Seattle.

This run is sponsored by the Langston Hughes African American Film Festival, ACLU of Washington, Amnesty International Puget Sound, and The Innocence Project Northwest.

Darryl Hunt's attorney, Mark Rabil, will be there Friday and Saturday. Friday will also have Q&A with Washington state criminal defense attorney Robert Flennaugh II.
Q&A with Washington state trial lawyer Jeff Grant. (Jeff Grant teaches Trial Ad and Pre-Trial Advocacy at the UW.) Panel discussion hosted by Langston Hughes African American Film Festival after 7:00 show on August 2.

I got to see the movie in March 2006, when the Innocence Project Network conference was here at the University of Washington and I thought it was great. (See earlier post.) Go see it if you can.
