Thursday, April 27 | 6-8:30 p.m. | CMU Ballroom
The MSUM Criminal Justice Association will be hosting a screening of the documentary “Untouchable” on Thursday, April 27, from 6-8:30 p.m. The screening will be held in the Comstock Memorial Union Ballroom and will be followed by a panel discussion with members of the Minnesota Sex Offender Reentry Project. This event is an opportunity for students, faculty, and all members of the Fargo-Moorhead community to be involved in a progressive discussion about such a sensitive issue. The discussion will also promote knowledge of re-integration and healing, as well as of the programs that are offered for both sex offenders and victims.
“‘Untouchable’ does what great documentaries do; it presents a complicated issue in all its complexity, with compelling interview subjects who humanize the stakes at hand. It is urgent without becoming alarmist, and it points to a possible changing of hearts and minds without propagandizing. It just so happens that the subject at hand is the punishment of sex offenders, including child molesters, but the pain around the issue makes this film more necessary, not less so.” — Daniel Glenn
