Life Without Parole Documentary Screening and Q & A
Saturday, October 8, 2022
4 – 5 p.m. Screening
5:15 – 6 p.m. Q & A with Filmmakers and Special Guest George Martorano
Directed by Jill Frechie and co-produced with John Ricciutti, “Life Without Parole,” delves deep into the reasoning behind George Martorano’s incarceration and how he turned his life around, not only for himself but for those who he met in prison.
The privately funded MainLineTV.org award-winning documentary film tells the story of Martorano, who was sentenced to life without parole in 1984 for marijuana-related offenses. He is the longest serving prisoner, first time, non-violent offender, in judicial history. Martorano also served almost 5 years in solitary confinement.
After serving 32 years in prison, and filing dozens of appeals, Martorano, 71, was finally released on Oct. 5, 2015 from Coleman Federal Prison Complex in Florida, the last of a string of federal prisons where he was incarcerated.
“Life Without Parole” is a FirstGlance Film Festival Audience Choice Winner for both Best of the Fest and Best Documentary and a Telly Bronze Award Winner.
Admission is free but donations to the non-profit Lower Merion and Narberth PA TV are welcome.
