A new series focusing on film and conversation. Hosted by Brooks Appelbaum.
You know how it feels when you see a mind-bending movie and you want to share it with everyone you know? This film series is a chance to do just that. We’ve chosen documentaries that provoke questions, invite disagreements, and demand discussion. The first in our series is There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane.How do you explain a woman known as a perfect wife, mother, aunt, and friend driving the wrong way for nearly two miles on the Taconic Parkway before causing a head-on collision that kills eight people, including herself and her family members? And what about the toxology report, which is not so perfect? Please join us for Reel Conversation! Please note: This film is rated TVMA and includes a warning concerning explicit accident footage that might be disturbing to some viewers.
