Debater Louis Blackwell in \"Resolved\"
Debater Louis Blackwell in \"Resolved\"

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, Utah – 400 words per minute. It may not sound like the best way to make an argument, but in the world of competitive debate, it's how you cram as many facts as possible into the allotted time. Filmmaker Greg Whiteley was a high school debater and he knew he could find some interesting characters in the debate world. The result is his Emmy nominated film Resolved. It follows one of the best teams in the nation - and an inner-city team that decided to break all the debating rules.

There will be a free screening of Resolved Wednesday, November 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the Salt Lake City Library (210 East 400 South). Greg Whiteley will be on hand for a Q & A following the film. For more information, click here or call the Salt Lake City Film Center at 801-746-7000.
