At the Death House Door, the latest documentary by Kartemquin Films (Hoop Dreams), screens tonight at 7 PM at Thorne Auditorium, Northwestern University School of Law (375 E. Chicago). The film centers around the experiences of Reverend Carroll Pickett, the longtime death-house chaplain at "Walls" prison in Huntsville, Texas, and his relationship with Carlos De Luna (pictured), who is now widely believed to have been wrongly convicted and executed due to evidence uncovered by Trib reporters Steve Mills and Maurice Posley.

After the screening there will be a Chicago-exclusive panel discussion with Reverend Pickett; Steve Mills; Edwin C. Yohnka, director of communications and public policy for the American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois; and Peter Gilbert and Steve James, codirectors and coproducers of the film. Rob Warden, a legal affairs journalist and executive director of the Center on Wrongful Convictions, will moderate.

The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required; e-mail or call 312-422-5580.
