True Conviction: Film Screening & Panel

Wednesday, September 13, 2017 - 7:00pm
University Union Lyceum
No tickets required

After serving a combined sixty years in prison for crimes they did not commit, Texas exonerees Christopher Scott, Johnnie Lindsey and Steven Phillips form the unlikeliest of investigative team — helping wrongfully convicted prisoners obtain freedom like they did, through the emergence of DNA evidence or new information. In Jamie Meltzer's hardboiled yet rousing documentary TRUE CONVICTION, brotherly bonds are formed out of life-or-death circumstances — lengthy prison sentences in a state that executes more inmates than any other. Through the steadfast fieldwork of this grassroots "dream team," these Dallas detectives transform decades of hard time into a new career helping others

Joining us will be director Jamie Meltzer, and the film’s three stars- Christopher Scott, Johnnie Lindsey, and Steven Phillips.

True Conviction is brought to campus in collaboration with the UNT Fine Arts Series, UNT Libraries and PACE.
