Just as you start to believe your self-pity is warranted, count on seeing a documentary that proves you wrong. Daniel Birman filmed a truly tragic story in Me Facing Life: Cyntoia's Story. This doc surrounds the murder Cyntoia Brown committed at 16, and her experience within a criminal justice system that tried her as an adult. In short, abusive substitute parents stole her youth; the courts, the rest. Screenings at Colorado College's Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Cascade Ave., coloradocollege.edu) begin at 6 and 8. Admission is free — which, for at least another half-century, is something that can't be said for Cyntoia. — Eric Calder
