The two AALS Law & Film selections at this year’s meeting in San Francisco are Anatomy of a Murder, Tuesday evening at 7 p.m.,and La Jaula de Oro, Thursday evening at 6:30. I will moderate the discussion for Anatomy of a Murder, the classic courtroom drama about the quest for the truth behind an Army lieutenant’s killing of the man he accuses of raping his wife. Michael Olivas, Professor of Law, University of Houston Law Center, and a former AALS President, will moderate the discussion for La Jaula de Oro, a striking Mexican film about Central American undocumented immigrants and their dangerous journey to the United States. Special guest for the Thursday night presentation is the film’s producer, Luis Salinas. William S. Hein and Company is providing refreshments for both evenings.
