Prior to the screening of the film, we’ll give a brief introduction and note some interesting talking points portrayed in the movie. Brooks Appelbaum, Ph.D. and Dennis Bell moderate. This is the final film in our Strange But True series in which we watched films based on true stories with an odd twist.
