Lindy Lou, Juror Number Two

This screening is cosponsored by:
Texas Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty
and Dallas Peace & Justice Center

From PBS:
For 20 years, Lindy has lived with an unbearable feeling of guilt. Committed to fulfilling her civic duty, Lindy sat with 11 other people on a jury that handed down the death penalty to a Mississippi man convicted of a double homicide. An overwhelming feeling of regret compels Lindy to track down her fellow jurors. A conservative, religious woman from the South, she manages to tackle this topic with humor, an open mind and sincere curiosity.

From the filmmaker -  Florent Vassault:
A few years ago, while in the United States making my previous documentary, I was struck by the visceral attachment many U.S. citizens have to the death penalty. Although there seemed to be a rather superficial knowledge of this issue, in some areas--particularly in the South--support for the death penalty seemed like a belief, a real "faith." This is the question I wanted to ask with Lindy Lou, Juror Number Two: What becomes of such a belief after being confronted with the reality of a death sentence?

The First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival

Every month, at 7:00 pm on the first Tuesday, the Unitarian Universalist Church of Oak Cliff screens a film focusing on an important social justice issue. We hope you'll leave inspired and ready to hit the road in your own quest for a better world.

The best way to make a difference in the world is to first learn how others have done so. Is there a film you'd love to see to inspire you? Perhaps you have that one movie that just recharges you before a social justice battle. If so, please share with us, and we'll see about putting it on our list of films to show at the UUCOC First Tuesday Social Justice Film Festival.
