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

Ryan Polomski and Frank Bustoz’s documentary follows the Bastrop, TX conviction of young Rodney Reed for a murder he may not have committed. Using interviews with various sources, the filmmakers weave a compelling and disturbing argument on Reed’s behalf. Is justice blind? That’s just one of the many questions asked in State vs. Reed (2006: 60 mins.), which remains just as timely with Reed still sitting on death row. (In December 2008, Reed lost his appeal to the Texas CCA and the case appears to be heading to the 5th circuit.)
Followed by a Q&A videoconference with director/producer Ryan Polomski.  Filmmakers Bustoz and Polomski are first-time feature filmmakers.  State vs. Reed premiered at the 2006 South By Southwest Film Festival where it won the Lone Star States Audience Award.
