In 2015, 31-year-old mother of two Judy Malinowski was doused in petrol and set on fire by her ex-boyfriend. After her death, she became one of the first women to testify at her own murder trial from beyond the grave. Director Patricia E. Gillespie meticulously constructs the story behind this landmark legal case through harrowing firsthand footage, interviews with Judy’s family, and accounts from the police officers and attorneys who brought her murderer to justice. At the intersection of true crime and #MeToo, THE FIRE THAT TOOK HER fearlessly and compassionately articulates the tragedy of how much women must suffer in order to be believed. An MTV Documentary Films release.

Scheduled to attend: Director Patricia E. Gillespie, Film Subject Bonnie Bowes
