The Trials Of Darryl Hunt
Director: Anne Sundberg, Ricki Stern Run Time: 106 min. Release Year: 2007
MUSE Winston-Salem presents a free community screening of “The Trials of Darryl Hunt” – a feature documentary about a brutal rape/murder case and a wrongly convicted man, Darryl Hunt, who spent nearly twenty years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Both a social justice story and a personally driven narrative, the film chronicles this capital case from 1984 through 2004. With exclusive footage from two decades, the film frames the judicial and emotional response to a chilling crime – and the implications that reverberate from Hunt’s conviction – against a backdrop of class and racial bias in the South and in the American criminal justice system.
Please stay following the screen for a post-film discussion.
