Collective Eye Films says
Emmy Award-Winning Filmmaker to Present Acclaimed Matthew Shepard Documentary about targeted hate crimes and LGTBQ rights to Hollywood Theater

Join us for a screening in support of LGBTQ rights about Matthew Shepard, a revered brother, son, friend, and victim of a targeted hate crime.

On October 7, 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten and tied to a fence and left to die because he was gay. Years later, Michele Josue (pictured right), a close friend of Matt's, revisits the shocking case with never-before-seen photos, rare video footage, as Shepard's all-too-brief life is remembered through the vivid testimonies of those who knew him best. New revelations emerge in one of the most notorious hate crimes in US history, leading to a searing, poignant, and multi-layered biographical and sociological portrait. In the end, the notion of forgiveness--embodied in the moving and courageous final act of Shepard's parents--takes on truly heroic proportions. A 2016 Daytime Emmy-Award winner in the Creative Arts category, Michele Josue’s artfully portrayed life-changing story will leave audiences with a thirst for change and hope for the future.
