The Laramie Project
We all remember the shocking headlines: Twenty-one-year-old Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, severely beaten, tied to a fence, and left to die.
As the story continued to unfold, a group of writers went to Laramie, Wyoming to interview hundreds of real people about the incident and what happened in the aftermath. The result is this incredible “live documentary” exploring the impact of this unspeakable crime and the way it changed the town of Laramie, and the nation, forever.
