After you register for this screening, be sure to register for the follow-up event, Members-Only Q&A: The Penny Black, featuring a conversation with director Joe Saunders, producer Alex Greer and featured subject Will Cassayd-Smith, moderated by Jenn Wilson (Senior Programmer, Film Independent). (Wednesday, June 9 – 3:00 pm PT)

Film Independent Members, you and a guest are invited to watch The Penny Black in our Film Independent Presents Online Screening Room, powered by Vision Media.

The Penny Black is a nonfiction investigative thriller that begins with Will, the estranged son of a conman, his unknowable Russian neighbor and a million-dollar stamp collection. A provocative exploration of Will’s fear and integrity, the documentary follows a hunt to find the owner of the collection. When a significant piece of the stamp collection goes missing, the filmmakers are forced to reexamine Will’s capacity for honesty.
