Release Notes


Official Website


Berg digs up astounding new evidence—and makes a very strong case for a recent suspect’s guilt—in her mind-blowing look at the current state of the West Memphis Three case, which has been going on for nearly twenty years (and was popularized by Joe Berlinger’s epic Paradise Lost docs). Raises the bar for nonfiction filmmaking, highlights the potential for the medium as a social tool, and—most important—could affect real change.
