New York Social Diary – By Liz Smith
DOCUMENTARIES seem to be the lifeblood of film these days; everybody is doing one or presenting an idea for one at Sundance or Tribeca. And here is one hosted by the much-admired actress Judith Light. She’ll be talking to Lekha Singh in an April 8th event titled “Beyond Right & Wrong: Stories of Justice and Forgiveness.”
Although public relations people seem not to know these days how to write a press release telling who, what, where, and when, I have ferreted this info out because I revere actress Light who is the winner of just about every award the theater can give. (She is also the dynamic boss of TV’s recent past in “Who’s the Boss?” and has had a recurring role as a tough judge on “Law and Order.”)
Judith Light will host a screening of “Beyond Right & Wrong: Stories of Justice and Forgiveness.”
The documentary happens at 6:30 in the NYIT Auditorium on 1871 Broadway between 61st and 62nd. You can phone 646-273-6100. (You have to be invited, but try anyway.)
“Beyond Right & Wrong” presents the stories of people who’ve experienced loss and the people who caused it. From the Rwandan Genocide to the troubles in Northern Ireland to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, these souls have entrusted us with their stories, remorse, pain, and paths to recovery.
After the blood dries and the screams fade, these people become prisoners of their fates, so how do societies recover? Can victims and perpetrators work together? High-minded stuff!
But when Judith Light endorses, I know it’s important. She’s the Boss!
