Welcome to our Friday Night Film Discussions! We hope you will join us virtually, until we can meet in person again. We’ll be discussing “In Her Name” — “An interesting and intense film that lets the viewer make its own conclusions through a very agile ending.” —Erick Estrada, Cinegarage

The way it works:

PRIOR to the meeting (whenever works for your schedule), watch “In Her Name” on Kanopy — one of the library’s video streaming service — and then come to the meeting prepared to discuss!

You will need an Ashland Library card or a Boston Public Library e-card to use Kanopy. Click here to access Kanopy or for more info on the BPL e-card (see if you are eligible and then register. You can use any of BPL’s online resources with this card!)

Please register to receive the program link, which will be in your confirmation and reminder emails (check your spam folder for them!). Contact ashlandprograms@minlib.net with any questions.


Based on the true Kalinka Bamberski case, “In Her Name” follows the three decade battle faced by a father to bring his daughter’s murderer to justice. Faced with challenges from the French and German legal systems, Bamberski’s story is one of perseverance and obsessive determination.
