Max Good (Vigilante Vigilante: The Battle for Expression), returns to Rev with this absorbing JFK assassination documentary.
Marina Oswald and her children lived in Ruth Paine’s house in the months prior to the assassination of the president in November 1963.
Ruth Paine helped provide key evidence against Lee Harvey Oswald and answered more than 5000 questions for the Warren Commission.
Now 84 years old, Paine enjoys life in a retirement community, but she is also one of the few surviving witnesses and a target for researchers into the assassination.
This semi-investigative, semi-biographical work takes a new angle on the JFK mystery with rarely seen footage, surprising linkages and a good dose of ambiguity just for good measure.
Good’s film is a fascinating exploration and portrait of Mrs Paine and her experiences.
