TALES OF THE GRIM SLEEPER

Expected to Attend: Nick Broomfield

In one of his finest films, Nick Broomfield digs into a true crime story of a Los Angeles serial killer that raises larger questions about gender, race and class inequality. Broomfield enlists the help of a former prostitute, Pam, who shines as a lively, funny and courageous personality. Together they hit the streets to dig up information where the police investigation has run cold. The film builds to a powerful climax conveying a grave injustice that extends well beyond this one case. Courtesy of HBO Documentary Films. 

The director is expected to be person for both screenings.

Come see Nick Broomfield in conversation during Doc-A-Thon.
