The USCB Center for the Arts presents the Indie Film “Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger” on Monday, July 28 at 7 p.m.

From Academy Award-nominated director Joe Berlinger, “Whitey: United States of America v. James J. Bulger” is a sweeping and revelatory documentary film that follows the trial of the infamous gangster James “Whitey” Bulger, using the courtroom action as a springboard to examine accusations of multi-faceted corruption within our nation’s law enforcement and legal systems.

It was an official selection at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and the 2014 Miami International Film Festival.

“Compelling. It just may be one of the best true crime documentaries. Like Morris or Herzog, Berlinger has emerged as one of the great documentarians of the age,” wrote Jason Gorber of Twitch.

Tickets are adults $7, senior $6, students $7. USCB Center for the Arts is located at 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort, SC, 29902. Contact the box office at 843-521-4145 or email bhargrov@uscb.edu or www.uscbcenterforthearts.com.
