Awards Spotlight: Lorena
From Executive Producer Jordan Peele and directed by acclaimed documentary filmmaker Joshua Rofé (Lost for Life), Lorena reveals the hidden truths in the notorious case of John Wayne and Lorena Bobbitt née Gallo and challenges the long-held narrative that surrounded this event. The series provides a fresh perspective on the story of Lorena Bobbitt and exposes how this event laid the groundwork for the modern 24-hour news cycle and increasing sensationalistic media coverage. Lost in tabloid coverage and late-night talk show jokes, the Bobbitt story was a missed opportunity for a national discussion on domestic and sexual assault in America. Lorena is a groundbreaking re-investigation of the deep moral issues and painful human tragedies buried at the heart of this infamous American scandal.
This special event includes a screening of episode three followed by a Q&A featuring Director Joshua Rofé and Series subject Lorena Bobbitt, moderated by Mark Jonathan Harris, Academy-Award winning filmmaker.
