In 1944, Nobel Laureate Gunnar Myrdal asked: How could America's belief in liberty and equality also enable Jim Crow segregation? This PBS documentary uses Myrdal's inquiry to probe - through a diverse chorus of commentators - the power of unconscious biases today in what some have called post-racial America.

Silicon Valley Reads Film: "Scenes of a Crime" at Gilroy Library

11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Gilroy Library
One of the most honored justice documentaries in recent years, this true crime documentary explores a haunting question: Why would an innocent man confess to something he didn't do? Police investigating the suspicious death of a four-month-old boy secretly video-recorded 10 hours of their interrogation of the child's father, Adrian Thomas. The video provides a window on the hidden world of police interrogation techniques in wide use by investigators in the U.S., and became the focus of a contentious and controversial criminal trial in New York. The case - and the film - drew the attention of the Innocence Project, Center on Wrongful Convictions, and other legal advocates, and the resulting appeal brought new standards for police interrogation.

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Los Altos Library
WITCH HUNT Director and Los Altos resident Dana Nachman will introduce the film and be on hand after the showing for a Q & A.

Sean Penn narrates this documentary about a local justice system that abused its power. It tells the story of California resident John Stoll, who was arrested and subsequently charged with multiple cases of child molestation, including his own son. In the 1980s, Stoll's was only one of an epidemic of false convictions in the area. Through interviews with those unjustly arrested, the film examines the morally hysteric climate that contributed to the situation. 90 minutes
