“Screening Evidence before an Oscar nominated film such as The Artist is simply a privilege and honor for our short,” said Lund who directed Evidence. “I can’t thank Bill Dougherty enough for the opportunity to present Evidence to Olde Mistick’s audiences and his support of the independent filmmaker.”
Written by Mark Lund, in Justice Is Mind http://www.imdb.com/
Evidence begins in the chambers of Judge Richard Wagner when motions are presented by Henri’s defense counsel in a desperate attempt to suppress the key memory evidence of the alleged double murder. The story continues at the Miller residence with Henri growing more unstable and his journalist wife, Margaret, attempting to bring some normalcy to their situation—a futile attempt when the news of Henri’s fate is broadcast to the world.
Justice Is Mind: Evidence has recently secured distribution from IndieFlix. A distributor of over 2,500 independent films, this is the second film of Lund’s that IndieFlix has picked up, the first being the 2007 sci-fi production of First World. A release date will be announced separately.
The short film version Evidence was produced to introduce the concept of Justice Is Mind and to act as a capital raise vehicle to produce the feature length version. In concert with the producer’s capital raise activities, the production has launched a crowdfunding campaign on IndieGoGo to further interest in the project. http://www.indiegogo.com/
Justice Is Mind: Evidence stars Vernon Aldershoff (Henri Miller), Alexander Cook (John Darrow), Maria Natapov (Constance Smith), John Depew (Judge Wagner), Robin Rapoport (Margaret Miller) and Toula Coin (News Reporter). The film also introduces Joshua Hey (Brian Miller) and Kim Merriam (Court Stenographer)

About Olde Mistick Village Art Cinemas
Growing up in “The Business” didn’t always mean Hollywood for Bill Dougherty the owner of the Olde Mistick Village Art Cinemas. Starting out cleaning the bathrooms in his father’s theater, Dougherty witnessed firsthand what it meant to really run a business. Dougherty’s father, William F. Dougherty, Sr., along with his partners, pioneered the first multi-screen theater in Southeastern Connecticut. Through the years, the partnership constructed or acquired locations in Groton, Derby, Mystic, Norwich, Westerly and Narragansett before selling to Hoyts. They were the last operators of the Norwich/New London Drive-In. Dougherty vowed in 1986 to someday bring theater back to local ownership. On May 5, 2006 Dougherty fulfilled that life long dream. Every day as Dougherty unlocks the front doors and turns on the lights, in that moment of silence before the employees arrive or costumers start buying tickets, he remembers what his father told him, “You will own the seats, screens, projectors and popcorn machines. The building and property belong to Joyce and Jerry, but the theatre belongs to the community.”
