Murder on a Sunday Morning, a 2001 documentary, follows the Brenton Butler murder trial in Jacksonville, Florida. In 2000, a killer shoots a female tourist outside of a hotel in Jacksonville and then runs away. Later that day, police arrest a 15-year-old African-American student from the local high school carrying a job application. After the husband of the victim picks Brenton Butler out of a line-up of suspects, two detectives, including the current county sheriff's son, allegedly physically abuse and threaten Butler into falsely confessing to the murder. The documentary follows Fourth Judicial Circuit public defenders, Ann Finnell and Patrick McGuinness, as they attempt to prove that Brenton Butler is innocent and attack the supposedly coerced confession. Murder on a Sunday Morning, also known as Un coupable id''al, won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2001. French filmmaker, Jean-Xavier de Lestrade, is also known for his six-hour long magnum opus, The Staircase.
