Join us for the 2010 Fall Alumni Film Series named "Global Justice" happening 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, Sept. 22-Nov. 10. Part three of the film series, Incident at Oglala is a documentary produced and narrated by Robert Redford examining the murder case involving Leonard Peltier and the conflicting evidence which suggests he is an innocent victim.  In June of 1975, two FBI agents were killed in a village near Oglala, SD, and though many were charged with the crime, only Native American leader Leonard Peltier was convicted of murder.

Global Justice participants will see eight films selected by Star Tribune critic Colin Covert '74 that take an international look at how films depict justice in various cultures, environments, and political frameworks.  The films for the series include: The Bicycle Thief (9/22), The Verdict (9/29), Incident at Oglala (10/6), The Castle (10/13), In the Name of the Father (10/20), Midnight Express (10/27), Crimes and Misdemeanors (11/3), The Postman Always Rings Twice (11/10).

The registration fee for the film series is $40 per person for the entire series or $5 per person for each film.  Register online here
