During Winter semester, a series of human rights films that focus on the theme of disappearances will be shown through Zoom. Discussion will follow the movie.

The Dozier School for Boys in Marianna, Florida was supposed to be a place where troubled kids could go to straighten out their lives. What these boys found there would instead leave lasting scars and dozens of unexplained deaths.Deadly Secrets follows the work of forensic anthropologist Dr. Erin Kimmerle from the University of South Florida, who has made it her personal mission to uncover the truth behind these mysterious deaths and disappearances. With unprecedented access to family members, photography and old records, Dr. Kimmerle and reporter Ben Montgomery expose the truth behind Dozier's missing boys, providing closure to families that have been haunted by this nightmare for decades.
