Yeah, it went by the name Edwin Boyd in Canada and by the name Citizen Gangster in the USA and maybe in other markets.

Sounds like an interesting screening tonight, would have loved to be able to attend if I had known in advance. Been meaning to see the film and would be interesting with the director/ book author there.
