West of Memphis Debuts a Trailer and Poster

November 2, 2012


Next month, Sony Pictures Classics is releasing Amy Berg's acclaimed documentary West of Memphis and, today, iTunes Movie Trailers has revealed a trailer and poster. Check them both out below.

Produced by Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, West of Memphis is a powerful documentary that chronicles the new investigation surrounding the "West Memphis Three, which ultimately broke the case open and led to the freedom of three innocent men: Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr. Beginning with a searing examination of the fatally flawed police investigation into the 1993 murders of three, eight year old boys in the small town of West Memphis, Arkansas, the film goes on to reveal personal insight into Echols' fight to save his own life; how he survived eighteen years on death row and eventually freed himself from the hatred and ignorance of those who had tried to destroy him. The film asks the question that still haunts Echols, Baldwin and Misskelley to this day - what value do we, as a society place on the truth?
