RadioWest and Utah Film Center have partnered to present the best in documentary filmmaking. We talk with established and new directors who are changing the way audiences see the world and then screen their films.

Through the Lens: Valentine Road

Tuesday, we continue our Through the Lens series as Doug is joined by filmmaker Marta Cunningham for a look at her documentary VALENTINE ROAD. It tells the story of two victims of a 2008 school shooting: the flamboyant transgender 15-year-old who was murdered and the 14-year-old emerging white supremacist who pulled the trigger. Here are the questions at the heart of the film: what do you do to help kids like Larry King and Brandon McInerney before violence occurs – and what do you do after you've failed?

On Wednesday, May 1st at 7:00 p.m., RadioWest and the Utah Film Center will present a screening of VALENTINE ROAD at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. It's part of our Through the Lens documentary series, and director Marta Cunningham will be on hand for a Q&A immediately following the film.

Doors open at 6:30. The event is free, but seats are available on a first-come basis. For more details or to invite your friends via our Facebook event page, click here.
