All of us love to celebrate those moments in American history where there have been breakthroughs particularly in the way of our constitutional rights. We should celebrate those moments, but the latest film from Michelle Danner reminds us that there are also victims when it comes to rights of the accused. Miranda’s Victim is a wonderful portrayal of just that situation. We all know about Miranda warnings given to suspects upon arrest. If you’ve seen enough cop shows, you’ve heard it a thousand times: “You have the right to remain silent…” This film explores the victim behind Ernest Miranda’s landmark Supreme Court case. It’s a rare film that looks at a rare side of our criminal justice system. I had a chance to see the film and then have a conversation with director Michelle Danner about the film. Bang it here to eavesdrop on our conversation, and you won’t even need a court order to listen in. Interview with Michelle Danner.
