Description: 
Screening & discussion of America Reframed "The Perfect Victim."  Four incarcerated women Shirley, Carlene, Tanya and Ruby were beaten, raped, sold, abused, and nearly killed by their husbands. Collectively, they spent over eighty-five years in Missouri State prison each serving life sentences, convicted for having killed their husbands to save their lives. Through the years, the local press vilified these women, portraying them all as savage murderers without any knowledge of the ongoing abuse they suffered. 
 
With the help of impassioned lawyers and law students from the Missouri Battered Women’s Coalition they begin a decade and a half long quest to secure their freedom. But will the judicial system and a notoriously secretive Missouri parole board give them a chance to renew their lives?
 
Event is free and open to the public.

Description: 
Independent Lens’ Best of Enemies is a documentary about the legendary debates between two great public intellectuals, Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley.  Their program came to define a new era of 
public discourse in the media demarcating the moment that TV’s political ambition shifted from narrative to spectacle.  In the summer of 1968, ABC News aired a series of ten nationally televised debates 
during the presidential conventions.  Viewing each other’s political ideologies as dangerous – even catastrophic – for America, they slugged out policy, personal insult and revisionist histories to stake out opposing political positions that continue to resonate today.
