6/28/11: Through the Lens - Tabloid


Tuesday, we bring you the latest in our documentary film series "Through the Lens." Doug is joined by Errol Morris, whose latest film tells the bizarre story of Joyce McKinney. In 1977, the former beauty queen followed the man of her dreams across the globe. He was serving his Mormon mission; she was convinced he had been brainwashed. The ensuing story of gunpoint abduction landed her in the tabloid headlines. Morris joins us to talk about why stories like McKinney's fascinate him and about his career of bringing these stories to audiences.

  • Join us Wednesday, June 29 at the Tower Theatre for a free screening of Errol Morris' "Tabloid." The film begins at 7:00 p.m., and will be followed by a panel discussion with producer Mark Lipson, KRCL's Troy Williams and Utah filmmaker Trent Harris. The evening is hosted by Doug Fabrizio. Arrive early to get a seat. More information is available here
  • "Tabloid" opens July 22 at the Salt Lake Film Society. Click here for more information.
