Tuesday, November 13, 2018 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

What do you do when your classmate, friend and neighbor -- a Cambridge Rindge and Latin high schooler -- turns out to be responsible for the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings that shook the world? Henry Hayes and Zolan Kanno-Youngs, high school classmates of Dzohkhar Tsarnaev explore these questions in a narrative film, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Join us for a screening and a panel moderated by NPR's Robin Young.

The dramatic short film takes place in the immediate aftermath of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing; when a group of Cambridge Rindge and Latin School friends must confront the truth that one of their friends, Dzohkhar Tsarnaev, is responsible. Henry and Zolan made the film to explore the trauma of losing a friend in this way.
