West of Memphis
Directed by Amy Berg
From director Amy Berg, in collaboration with first time Producers Damien Echols and Lorri Davis along with filmmakers Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh comes West of Memphis, a powerful examination of a catastrophic failure of justice in Arkansas. The documentary tells the hitherto unknown story behind an extraordinary and desperate fight to bring the truth to light. Told and made by those who lived it, Berg's unprecedented access to the inner workings of the defense, allows the film to show the investigation, research and appeals process in a way that has never been seen before; revealing shocking and disturbing new information about a case that still haunts the American South.
"A first-rate investigative documentary on the notorious West Memphis Three case, its questionable prosecution and its dubious resolution." - John Anderson, Variety
"Thorny, blood-boiling and finely made, it deserves a theatrical push." - John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
