Brother’s Keeper by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky (USA, 1992, 104 min.). Documentary.

Filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky directed this documentary about a death in upstate New York in 1990. William Ward, the eldest of four brothers, was found dead in his home; his brother Delbert was accused of suffocating him. The ensuing trial leads to tensions within the Wards’ small rural community as an influx of media causes a clash between the rural residents and the urban reporters.

Followed by a Q&A with Joe Berlinger. Co-presented with The Docyard and UMass Boston Film Series.
