Co-presented by Huntington League of Womens Voters, New Yorkers for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, and Cinema Arts Centre

Guest Speakers: Alan Newton, wrongfully convicted of rape and exonerated after serving nearly half his life21 yearsin prison; Elizabeth Webster, Publications Manager for the Innocence Project

After Innocence tells the dramatic and compelling story of the exonerated-innocent men wrongfully imprisoned for decades and then released after DNA evidence proved their innocence. The film focuses on the story of seven men and their emotional journey back into society and efforts to rebuild their lives. Included are a police officer, an army sergeant and a young father sent to prison and death row for decades for crimes they did not commit.The men are thrust back into society with little or no support from the system.While the public views exonerations as success stories - wrongs that have been righted - After Innocence shows that the human toll of wrongful imprisonment can last far longer than the sentences served. The film raises questions about human rights and society's moral obligation to the innocent and places a spotlight on the flaws in our criminal justice system that lead to wrongful conviction of the innocent. The film also features Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, founders of the Innocent Project which has helped to exonerate the more than l50 people freed through the use of DNA testing in the last decade; and highlights the work of human rights activist Dr. Lola Vollen, co-founder of the Life After Exoneration Program.
