Angela Rhoades, who teaches forensics, will give a talk about this particular branch of science in relation to a screening of this unique documentary. Narrated by John Waters, Of Dolls and Murder is filmmaker Susan Marks’ story about Frances Glessner Lee (1878-1962), a Baltimore socialite and grandmother who aided police with her “Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death,” dollhouse miniatures that depict scenes of violent murder and other crimes. Her detailed dioramas helped train detectives to sharpen their investigative skills, earning her the nickname “Patron Saint of Forensic Science.” (US 2012) 70 min. plus discussion.
