    Acclaimed cartoonist John “Derf” Backderf introduces the preview screening of My Friend Dahmer. Adapted from Backderf’s award-winning graphic novel, the film recounts the increasingly troubled high school years of notorious serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Shot in northeast Ohio (including scenes at Dahmer’s childhood home), it’s both a remarkable re-creation of late-1970s teen culture and a nuanced portrait of an unbalanced life. (107 min.,DCP)
