July 15 When Innocence is Not Enough
Instructor: Thomas Dybdahl with Chris Turner

With the Brady Rule decision in 1963, the Supreme Court decreed that prosecutors must disclose favorable evidence to the defense that might exonerate the defendant of guilt—part of a suite of decisions to promote fairness in the criminal justice system. Focusing on an infamous 1984 murder case in Washington, DC, learn how and why the Brady Rule, which was supposed to promote fairness, ended up doing the very opposite and sent Chris Turner, one of those convicted for the DC crime, to jail for 25 years for a murder he did not commit. Both men will discuss and answer questions about a path to lasting change and how individual citizens can make a difference.

July 22 Alan Arkin, The Man Behind the Scenes
Instructor: Ron Bostwick

Alan Arkin’s career encompassed films and TV shows embedded in our collective memories. From humor (The Russians Are Coming, The In-Laws, The Kominsky Method), to touching humanity (The Heart Is A Lonely Hunter, Little Miss Sunshine), to terrifying drama (Wait Until Dark), he did it all. Ron Bostwick will discuss and show film clips and photos from Alan Arkin’s career and share personal stories from their friendship.
