Sundance Spotlight: West of Memphis

The first time I had heard about this documentary was through Kevin a couple months ago, but even at that time I had no idea what this story was really about. Produced by Peter Jackson (YEP THE Peter Jackson,) and Fran Walsh, the two decided to dig deeper into an investigation that put three innocent men behind bars for the murder of three young boys back in 1993. This documentary re-tells the story of how this came to be and how new evidence and  new witnesses are coming forward in an attempt to put the actual killer behind bars.

It is a truly a remarkable story. I can’t wait to read the reviews on it and watch the documentary myself.
