November 9th-7:00 and 9:30 PM- 96 minutes
Dir. Peter Askin- USA 2007

In 1950, in the heat of the Red Scare, ten members of Hollywood's elite were called before congress to testify. Among them was Dalton Trumbo. Originally known for his controversial screenplays, Trumbo became even more famous when he refused to give evidence, and was eventually blacklisted from the film industry. Set in nation gone mad, Peter Askin's documentary examines not only the infamous writer, but the entire mood and fear of the era, and how strongly this man's stand for the voice of the individual resonates today.
