We wanted to share some exciting recent news about "The Abominable Crime," and let you know about a few upcoming chances to see the film.
We just finished up a two week tour of Europe, sponsored by the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting. Micah attended two film festivals and also screened the film for hundreds of students in Paris, Brighton, and London! While screening in Amsterdam, we won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the Roze Filmdagen LGBT Film Festival.
In London, we also had the privilege of three screening at the BFI Flare Film Festival -- as well as a special panel discussion organized around the topic of "The Abominable Laws" that encompassed updates on anti-gay laws in Jamaica, Nigeria, India and Russia. Micah and Maurice were both in attendance and took part in a Q&A after the screening, which you can watch here.
