Truth And Consequence: Park Productions to screen new documentary


When: Friday, September 26, 2008 at 4:00pm

Where: Park Auditorium

Park Productions announces a screening of a new documentary about a controversial and important topic. It is an intolerable fact that some children are abused. And yet, false allegations of abuse have lead to tragic miscarriages of justice. One scientist has spent his career trying to answer the question many people wish he wouldn’t ask: should we believe the kids?

At Cornell University, renowned psychologist Stephen Ceci studies the accuracy of children’s courtroom testimony particularly in cases alleging physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect. “Truth and Consequence” is a short (37 minute) documentary that focuses on Professor Ceci’s research and three court cases in which he testified as an expert witness.
