Crime After Crime

USA/English (94 mins)

Western Canada Premiere! Crime After Crime tells the shocking true story of the battle to free Debbie Peagler, an incarcerated survivor of brutal domestic violence. 26+ years in prison cannot crush the spirit of this determined woman, despite a multitude of injustices dealt her – first, at the hands of the man who beat her and forced her into prostitution, and later, by prosecutors who cornered her into a life behind bars for her connection to the murder of her serial abuser. Debbie’s story takes an unexpected turn when a pair of rookie land-use attorneys decide to cut their teeth on her case -- attracting global attention to the troubled intersection of domestic violence and criminal justice.

Infuriating, eye-opening, and ultimately inspirational – Crime after Crime is a story you have to see to believe.

Screening sponsored by DOC-Alberta. Reception to follow.
