On April 6, 2012 at 6:00 PM crime drama Find Me Guilty (2006) has been shown and discussed. John C. Engstrom Resident Legal Advisor of US Embassy presented the film and lead the afterfilm discussion together with William McGilton. Presenter told the audience that the film was based on real events. It depicts the longest Mafia trial in NYC history, and most of the dialog is taken from the original records of the trial. In 1987-88, some 20 members of the Lucchese crime family, each with his own lawyer, were indicted on some 76 charges ranging from criminal conspiracy to narcotics trafficking. The trial went on for 21 months. After showing one of our patrons admitted that the movie had a really great script; it was funny, dramatic and touching. Viewers were really surprised by Vin Diesel's performance, they weren't expecting him to pull it off. Most people never have any interaction with the criminal justice system so they asked a lot of questions especially about jury selection and it’s work. John Engstrom explained that the jury pool is first selected from among the community using a reasonably random method and employers usually kept their salaries. At the end our presenters received an ovation. 19 patrons enjoyed the movie. Mostly students of Kyiv Mohyla Academy and Taras Shevchenko University, three employees and two lecturers.
