A talk by Kelly Matheson. 

Kelly Matheson will address how videos documenting injustices, captured on phones and other cameras by citizens who are often risking their lives, can be used as evidence in judicial proceedings and for human rights advocacy. She will present a number of case studies from Syria and other locations across the globe demonstrating how video has been used to secure prosecutions of the guilty or exonerations of the innocent. Cosponsors: Wayne Morse Center for Law and Politics and the Good Works Film Festival.
