Matt Shepard Is A Friend Of Mine - Reno Film Debut
MATT SHEPARD IS A FRIEND OF MINE FILM TO DEBUT AT BRÜKA THEATRE.

The Reno premiere of the film on November 16th will include Q&A with the director, producers and a few of Matthew Shepard's friends from the film.

Reno, NV Brüka Theatre will present the film at 7:00 pm on November 16th, 2013. Advance tickets will be $10 for students and seniors, $12 for general admission, and tickets will be $15 at the door. You can get tickets to this event online at brownpapertickets.com.
MATT SHEPARD IS A FRIEND OF MINE director Michele Josue, executive producer Liam McNiff and local co-producer Zeina Barkawi will host a Q&A immediately following the film.  
Zeina Barkawi, one of Matt's closest friends and a subject in the film, resides in Reno and is excited to bring this story and film to the local community .

Fifteen years ago, on the night of October 6, 1998, two men lured Matthew Shepard, a gay freshman at the University of Wyoming, from a bar in Laramie, WY. He was kidnapped and driven to a field where he was tortured and tethered to a fence and left to die. Never regaining consciousness, Matthew succumbed to the severe injuries from the attack and died on October 12, 1998.  

His tragic story brought the reality of inequality and vicious, irrational contempt into the public consciousness and set the stage for the landmark Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, which President Barack Obama signed into law in 2009.

MATT SHEPARD IS A FRIEND OF MINE follows director Michele Josue, a close friend of Matt's, as she travels to pivotal locations in Shepard's life, interviewing other friends and family members, and gaining insight into the beautiful life and devastating loss of Matthew Shepard.
