You are invited to attend a screening of Valentine Road as part of the Seattle International Film Festival.
June 1 | 2:30 pm | SIFF Cinema Uptown
Director Marta Cunningham scheduled to attend.
In February 2008, openly gay and transgendered eighth-grade student Lawrence King approached fellow student Brandon McInerney on the playground of an Oxnard, California middle school and asked him to be his Valentine. Two days later, King was shot twice at point-blank range and killed by McInerney with a handgun he'd brought to school. Lost within a swirl of higher-profile school shootings in recent years with higher death tolls, the tragic 2008 incident barely registered nationally, but it became a small media frenzy in the Oxnard area, with reports swirling about McInerney's alleged involvement with neo-Nazi hate groups.
