A Night for Conversation film premiere

Film Screening / Premiere: "A Night for Conversation" by Kade Mendelowitz.


November 2, 2019 @ 7:30pm in the Lee H. Salisbury Theatre.

"A Night for Conversation" is the story of William and Julia, a young married couple who seem to have it all: a nice home, a good income and a beautiful daughter. But there is a dark and unhappy side to the family – and Julia soon finds herself trapped in an emotional and physically abusive relationship, fearing for her life. A Night for Conversation is a story that is all-too-familiar for many Alaskan families.
The evening will serve as a fundraiser for the Adrina Knutson scholarship fund.
