Valentine Road Film Screening fundraiser | Shepparton | Thu 21 Aug @ 7pm - Has Ended
Join us for this movie fundraiser - all funds raised support OUTintheOPEN Festival, Greater Shepparton's newest festival celebrating community diversity (14-16 Nov 2014)
At the height of the bullying scandal that rocked the U.S. in 2008, a 15-year-old boy named Larry King asked another boy to be his valentine in a suburban schoolyard in California. The next day Larry was dead, shot in cold blood by his 14-year-old crush Brandon McInerney. At turns shocking, devastating, and outrageous, VALENTINE ROAD bores deeply into the homophobia, sexism, racism, and class-struggle that inform everyday American life—and reveals an American justice system that is utterly unprepared to deal with the realities of teenage crime and punishment. Directed by first-time feature documentarian Marta Cunningham, VALENTINE ROAD is an unforgettable exposé of society’s pervasive and deadly intolerance of young people who don’t conform to its gender “norms.” World premiered at Sundance 2013, this film will both break your heart and fire you up into action.
