Film Screening and Q&A: Marvin Booker was Murdered
February 27 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm
As part of the programing for the exhibit “America’s Mythic Time” on display at The Luminary (February 8-, we will be holding a film screening of the award-winning feature-length documentary film, “Marvin Booker was Murdered,” with a Q&A following afterward.
The film uncovers how Marvin Booker, a homeless street preacher, was brutally beaten to death by five Denver jail guards. His death was captured on videotape, and witnessed by more than twenty people. Yet, the guards were neither indicted, nor reprimanded.
The screening, as well as the Q&A conversation afterward, will incorporate themes present in “America’s Mythic Time,” an exhibition focused on the devastating impacts of racism within the criminal legal system, and the world of organizers, artists, and legal teams working to challenge the status quo.
Stay tuned for more information on panelists.
While this event is free and open to the public, this film contains graphic violence and viewer discretion is advised. Please RSVP on the Facebook event to reserve your ticket, as seating is limited.
