On Monday, July 27, Logo TV will be premiering the second documentary from its new Logo Documentary Films division. The film, Matt Shepard Is a Friend of Mine from filmmaker Michele Josue, interviews family, friends and the people who knew him best as well as police investigators, witnesses and the bartender who last saw him alive that fateful night nearly 20 years ago.
Come back later this week (or next Monday) as ESP will be running a clip from the film later in support of the premiere.
On October 7, 1998, University of Wyoming student Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten, tied to a fence and left to die because he was gay. Now, Josue, who was a close friend of Matt’s, revisits the shocking case with never-before-seen photos and rare video footage, as Matt’s all-too-brief life is remembered through the vivid testimonies of those whose lives he touched.
