People’s Film Festival in Omaha Oct. 17

The next People’s Film Festival event is this coming Monday, Oct. 17, held as always at 7 p.m. at First Unitarian Church, 31st and Harney streets. The theme will be the death penalty, and two short films will be shown. The first is the award-winning documentary Stones, which explores the death penalty in Nebraska. The second is a film clip from Democracy Now! that deals with two people, one from Ireland and one from the United States. “It is a story you will marvel at and also be uplifted by,” says Steve Horn. “It ought to put a stake through the heart of those who insist on blind retribution.”
