They will highlight the imperfections in our judicial system and suggest improvements that are sorely needed.
Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, defense attorneys for Steven Avery in the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer, bring their “Conversation on Justice” multi-city speaking tour to Denver’s Paramount Theater on Saturday, July 16. Traveling across the U.S. and Canada through mid-August, the tour involves Dean Strang and Jerry Buting in conversation about the Steven Avery case and its broader implications. There will also be a discussion on the larger topic of the American criminal justice system. Each night will also feature audience Q&A and the opportunity for those in attendance to address questions to Strang and Buting. A significant portion of the proceeds will be donated to local and national equal justice charities.
Making a Murderer became a docu-series phenomenon, with over 19 million viewers watching the program. Other true crime narratives, including The Jinx, Serial, and the OJ Simpson trial have made the subject of the strengths and weakness in the U.S. justice system a topic of conversation for the water cooler, dinner table, TV, radio, podcast, and everywhere in between. Strang and Buting will be exploring and discussing our process of justice today and throughout history. Reviewing these situations, they will highlight the imperfections in our judicial system and suggest improvements that are sorely needed.
Dean Strang and Jerry Buting present “A Conversation on Justice“ in Denver on Saturday, July 16, at the Paramount Theater (1631 Glenarm Pl., 80202) at 8 p.m., with Frederic Bloom moderating.
