Documentary Screening: The Vanishing Trial
February 1 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join the Libraries Student Advisory Board for documentary night in the Libraries! The Vanishing Trial (38 minutes) explores America’s justice system and how the “trial penalty” has led to the shocking disappearance of one of the most fundamental individual rights and the explosion of America’s prison population. Following the film, there will be a short discussion featuring guest speaker JaneAnne Murray from the UMN Law School’s Clemency Project. The event is free for all to attend, we’ll have popcorn, drinks, and snacks!
The Vanishing Trial is available for free to the University community through the Libraries subscription to Kanopy Streaming, a video streaming platform hosting a wide range of award-winning films and documentaries. The Libraries Student Advisory Board is the undergraduate student leadership team of the Libraries. Board members represent the student body and share feedback on library spaces, collections, and services. Board members also work with librarians and library staff on student engagement and outreach projects.
