In 2006, four young African-American lesbians in a gay-friendly neighborhood of New York City are violently and sexually threatened by an aggressive man on the street. They react in self-defense, stabbing the persistent man, warranting charges and court convictions. Director Blair Dorosh-Walther and producer Giovanna Chesler talk about their film “Out in the Night” with CPN’s Sean McCord. Together they take a look at the lives of the four women convicted of manslaughter and the media circus that surrounded the “Gang of Killer Lesbians.” The film will be shown Saturday November 8th at 5:00 p.m. at the Regal 1 theater on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall.
