The first clip has come for the documentary West of Memphis, which opens on Christmas Day courtesy of Sony Pictures Classics; and we’re pretty sure it will provide one of the most intense, powerful movie experiences this year. Check it out!
West of Memphis was written and directed by Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil) and produced by first-time filmmakers Damien Echols and Lorri Davis, in collaboration with the multiple Academy Award winning team of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh.
Starting with a searing examination of the police investigation into the 1993 murders of three, eight-year-old boys – Christopher Byers, Steven Branch, and Michael Moore – in the small town of West Memphis, Arkansas, the film reveals the story from the inside. West of Memphis uncovers new evidence surrounding the arrest and conviction of the other three victims of this shocking crime – Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley, all three of whom were teenagers at the time of their arrests and all three of whom were imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.
