Loss and Love

When: Fri., April 24 2015

A powerful documentary about loss, love and courage, Matt Shepard is a Friend of Mine tells the tale of Matthew Shepard, a young gay man who was tortured and murdered in 1998. Director Michele Josue, a close friend of Shepard's, presents an honest and intimate portrait of Matt through the personal lens of those that knew and loved him. It revisits the shocking case, going behind the headlines and using never-before-seen photos, videos and home movies from the Shepard family. The documentary has been met with great acclaim; it won the audience award for Best Film at last year’s Cleveland International Film Festival. It plays tonight at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque at 7:30 p.m. and shows again at 8:40 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $9. (Martin Harp)
