Local eminent domain film to be screened at library
“TRASHED,” a blend of documentary and drama made and screened 10 years ago by Nightshade Productions, will be shown for free on Aug. 19 at the New London Public Library, 63 Huntington St., New London.
The film, directed by local writer and filmmaker Nicholas Checker, premiered in 2005 and is being revisited in recognition of the 10th anniversary of the Kelo v. City of New London U.S Supreme Court case. “TRASHED” intercuts the fictitious story of a homeless young woman with commentary by documentarians on the subjects of eminent domain and homelessness.
Refreshments will be served. For further information, call (860) 444-8711.
