Lynette Miller and Kris Dempsey represented well at the 2021 Out at the Movies International Film Festival in Winston-Salem for the North Carolina premiere of Park View, as we carry Talana's story to other communities that can learn from the strength and resilience of the one in Wilmington!
On the 30th anniversary of Talana Kreeger's murder, February 22, 2020, the local preview of Park View in Wilmington, NC had a packed audience in the Church of the Good Shepherd... the only congregation in 1990 that would host the funeral of a lesbian.
"Stories such as the ones told in Park View are important to tell, to share, and to learn from. Let us amplify them, and thereby amplify each other and the community at large."
