Jaundiced Eye, The

Synopsis
A hard-hitting, tough documentary chronicling a gross miscarriage of justice and a devastating account of prejudice and homophobia from the producers of Waco: the Rules of Engagement. This harrowing tale concerns the 10 year long trials and emotional traumas suffered by a gay Michigan man Stephen Matthews and his father when Stephen’s ex-girlfriend and her husband accused them of molesting Stephen’s son. Despite a total lack of physical evidence, both men were sentenced to 35 years in jail. A chlamydia test which swayed the jury was later revealed to give false positive results. A compelling, illuminating documentary directed by Nonny de la Pe-a.
