Creighton University School of Law's Public Interest Law Forum to Host Showing of Award-Winning Documentary "After Innocence"

Creighton University School of Law’s Public Interest Law Forum will host a showing of the award-winning documentary After Innocence, at 4 p.m., Wednesday, March 22, in room 124 of Creighton's School of Law, located at 21st and Cass streets. The event is free and open to the public.

The documentary, which won the 2005 Sundance Film Festival's Special Jury Prize, tells the dramatic and compelling story of seven exonerated innocent men wrongfully imprisoned for decades and then released after DNA evidence proved their innocence. The film focuses on the gripping story of the men and their emotional journey back into society and efforts to rebuild their lives.

After the screening, Keith Findley, co-director and co-founder of the Wisconsin Innocence Project, will talk about his work with the wrongfully convicted and new legislation to compensate those who have been exonerated. A reception will be held following the presentation.
