Wallingford Library Launches Doucmentary Film Series

The Wallingford Public Library is launching a monthly film series on Saturday at 2 p.m..

The library's "Reel Conversation": will focus on documentaries that have sparked controversy. The first film in the series  is “There’s Something Wrong with Aunt Diane,” which will be shown in the library's Community Room.

 This 2011 film is about the controversy surrounding a July 2009 accident in which Diane Schuler drove the wrong way down a section of New York's Taconic Parkway before crashing head-on into another vehicle, killing herself and seven others. Toxicology tests showed that Schuler had been smoking marijuana and consumed the equivalent of 10 shots of alcohol.

 But in the film, Schuler's husband questions the accuracy of the tests and claims an undiagnosed illness caused his wife top behave in a way that was uncharacteristic.

Discussions of the films shown in the Reel Conversation series will be moderated by Quinnipiac University Professor Brooks Appelbaum.

The series continue on March 23 with the documentary “Forbidden Lie$."
