WESTPORT, Conn. -- There will be a screening of the documentary "Telling Amy's Story," a true account of a domestic violence homicide in central Pennsylvania at 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 6 in the Westport Library’s McManus Room.

The program, offered in partnership with the Westport Domestic Violence Task Force, is free. The film is narrated by actress and activist Mariska Hargitay, and told by Detective Deirdri Fishel of State College Police Department, the detective who led the case review.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with family violence victim advocate Liliana Vizcaino, attorney victim advocate Allison Roach from Norwalk Court and Lt. Jillian Cabana of the Westport Police Department, co-chair of the Westport Domestic Violence Task Force.

The task force supports the Domestic Violence Crisis Center and its mission and is comprised of advocates and volunteers, psychologists, community members and members of the police department, fire department, health and human Services and the interfaith community.

“Told by an impassioned police detective together with the courts, Amy's friends, and her family, 'Telling Amy's Story' creates a disturbing, and exasperating picture of a life that was,” said a review of the film.

For more information, call (203)291-4800 or check westportlibrary.org.

The library is at 20 Jesup Road, Westport.
