This week we listen to highlights from a panel discussion about the new documentary film The Holly, which won the audience award at Mountainfilm in Telluride. Director Julian Rubinstein based the film on his book of the same name, chronicling eight years of investigations into the story of an activist facing life in prison. At his own peace rally, Terrance Roberts shot a gang member and possible police informant. Roberts and Rubinstein received standing ovations at all three screenings of The Holly and sat down for a conversation with festival goers at the Hotel Telluride on May 28, 2022.
