In the interim, however, fans, friends and celebrities like Joan Jett (interviewed here) and Nirvana helped raise money to reopen what had become a cold case file. Mia's death had reverberated throughout the music community, and unexpectedly Mia's killer was brought to justice as the cameras rolled.” The movie screens at 7:30. There’s a discussion following with O'Kane and producer Jessica Bender.
