The Innocent Convicts examines in-depth the causes, reasons and aftermath of wrongful convictions. The documentary shows how perjured testimony, witness misidentification, faulty medical evidence, coerced confessions, evidence tampering, police misconduct, incompetent counsel, criminal justice lapses, racial injustice, and socioeconomic disparities contribute to the conviction of innocent individuals.

This event will feature poet Professor Maru Colbert and the founder of Conviction Integrity Program in Massachusetts, Donna Patalano.
