DALSA Movie Night

Join DALSA Friday, July 17, 2020, and 6:30 pm for movie night. We will be showing the documentary Lindy Lou, Juror Number 2 by Florent Vassault.


“For 20 years, Lindy has lived with an unbearable feeling of guilt. Committed to fulfilling her civic duty, Lindy sat with 11 other people on a jury that handed down the death penalty to a Mississippi man convicted of a double homicide. An overwhelming feeling of regret compels Lindy to track down her fellow jurors. A conservative, religious woman from the South, she manages to tackle this topic with humor, an open mind and sincere curiosity.”

Attendees will be watching in a Kosmi room. The room will remain empty until movie night.
