It will be followed by a panel discussion that will include David Feige, the film’s director, and Keith Wattley of Uncommon Law, which among other things helps people on parole at their parole hearings.

What it is about:

When a Florida lobbyist discovers his daughter has been sexually abused, he harnesses his extraordinary political influence to pass the toughest sex offender legislation in the country. UNTOUCHABLE chronicles his crusade and its impact on the lives of several of the 800,000 people forced to live under the laws he has championed. The film interweaves intimate portraits of men and women who have been branded sex offenders with stories of those who have suffered sexual abuse.

Join us for a post-film conversation with Keith Wattley and Director David Feige, winner of Tribeca Film Festival’s “New Documentary Director” award.

I guess if you are near or in Oakland already, then this might be a good thing. But being able to sit in the comfort of your own home and watch for the same price or less online is preferred.

I watched this via YouTube Premium for $3.99. Should have paid the $10 to “own” it. I recommend everyone in the movement see this film. Perhaps the general public would be well served to see it as well.

I watched it as well. The books are despicable people. There’s one part the documentary in which Lauren is reading a book to some children. And you can clearly hear Ron book bragging to some bystanders that he has men on his payroll in Honduras that is going to kill the woman that molested his daughter when she gets out. Is the government going to do anything about that? Of course not because he is white and Rich. Also during the documentary there’s a scene where Ron book is getting dressed in a mirror and you can clearly see 6 357 rounds on his dresser. Ron book is a convicted felon. It is illegal for him to own transport or possess Firearms or ammunition. Yet he is blatantly showing but he owns firearms. Is the government going to do anything about that? Of course not because he is white and Rich stop. He even admits in the documentary that none of the laws he has helped pass would have prevented his daughters abuse. There we’re even politicians in the documentary saying that they were too afraid of Ron book to oppose him.
