West of Memphis, TIFF
West of Memphis is a 2012 documentary film produced by Peter Jackson and Damien Echols, and directed by Amy J. Berg. Following from the original Paradise Lost film and its two sequels, West of Memphis follows the events of the West Memphis Three, a case in which three teenagers-Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin, and Jessie Misskelley-were arrested for the murders of three 8-year old children; Christopher Byers, Steven Branch, and Michael Moore. The West Memphis Three were subsequently convicted of murder and remained in prison for more than 18 years, being released just prior to the third Paradise Lost film.
The film just premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival, and you can check out photos from the event below!
