Out in the Night (2014)
First screened in September 2014
Director: blair dorosh-walther. Documentary about four African-American lesbians arrested and jailed in 2006 for defending themselves against sexist, homophobic harassment on the New York City streets. With Patreese Johnson, Terrain Dandridge, Renata Hill, Venice Brown.

Twitter Capsule: Succinctly skillful at indicting specific injustice and systematic inequality. Strong evocation of distinct personas.

VOR:   With tighter budget and shorter runtime, digs even deeper into the kind of racially, sexually, and politically inflected injustice that The Central Park Five confronted last year.
