SCREEN JUSTICE 3… Spring 2009
Giving Voice to Smart Socially-Conscious Films

Produced by 12-time Emmy award-winning producers/directors Jon Alpert and Matt O’Neill, Access Denied (2008/22 mins.) tells the powerful story of Diana Levine, a lifelong musician who sued Wyeth Pharmaceuticals after faulty drug labeling resulted in the amputation of her arm.  Diana's case was argued in the Supreme Court on November 3, 2008.  Through an examination of Diana Levine’s case against Wyeth Pharmaceuticals - and the experiences of others like her - Access Denied  takes the legal issue of preemption out of the courtroom and into the real world, where millions of Americans find themselves unable to access the courts and hold corporations accountable for their misconduct.
 
Alliance for Justice President, Nan Aron, will lead a post screening discussion of the important legal topics discussed in the film. 
 
Reception 5:45pm, Program begins 6:15pm
