On September 17, 2020, gang leader turned anti-gang activist Terrance Roberts was arrested for “inciting a riot” for his leadership of a protest at the Aurora Police District 1 headquarters. Adams County District Attorney Brian Mason later dropped all charges against five defendants in the case.

Julian Rubinstein’s feature documentary The Holly screens at TACAW in Willits Thursday, August 25 at 7:30 p.m.

The journalist spent seven years researching, writing and publishing a book of the same name.

Together, the book and film weave an intricate web examining development, gentrification, gang activity, and abuses by law enforcement in Denver.

Rubenstein and the film's subject, former gang leader Terrance Roberts (pictured above), will facilitate a community discussion following the film.

KDNK’s Morgan Neely spoke with the author/director by phone to learn more.
