Mary B. Martin School of the Arts at ETSU will present Valentine Road, an HBO documentary unraveling the story of the 2008 point-blank shooting of Oxnard, Calif., eighth-grader Larry King by one of his classmates. The 15-year-old died on Valentine’s Day and the film covers the heartbreaking circumstances and startling aftermath of the murder. Valentine Road – which also explores the effects of the event on the students, teachers and community and underlying issues of race, gender identity, troubled youth, bullying and the justice system – has been nominated for an Emmy for news and documentary filmmaking. “The result is quite possibly one of the best documentaries I’ve ever seen … a remarkable debut by Marta Cunningham,” says reviewer Alice Lytton on Indiewire.com. The free ETSU screening of Valentine Road will take place in ETSU’s Martha Street Culp Auditorium at 7 p.m., Monday, Oct. 20, during National Bullying Prevention Month, and will be followed by a Q&A and reception with the filmmaker. The film is one of six films the School of the Arts will screen in 2014-15 from South Arts Southern Circuit Tour of Independent Filmmakers.
