"All The Queen's Horses" Screening and Director Discussion

"All The Queen's Horses" Screening and Director Discussion

As city comptroller of Dixon, IL, Rita Crundwell stole $53 million of public funds across 20 years––making her the perpetrator of the largest case of municipal fraud in American history. She used the funds to build one of the nation's leading quarter horse breeding empires, all while forcing staff cuts, police budget slashing, and neglect of public infrastructure. All The Queen's Horses investigates her crime, her lavish lifestyle and the small town she left in her wake.

The screening will be followed by a talk back with Kelly Richmond Pope, Director and Producer, and Diana B. Henriques, author of The Wizard of Lies, about the film's lessons on moral and ethical leadership. This event is open to the public and refreshments will be served.
