    Trailer for the documentary West of Memphis. West of Memphis tells the untold story behind an extraordinary and desperate fight to bring the truth to light; a fight to stop the State of Arkansas from killing an innocent man. 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 goes on to uncover 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 were teenagers when they became the target of the police investigation; all three went on to lose 18 years of their lives - imprisoned for crimes they did not commit. How the documentary came to be, is in itself a key part of the story of Damien Echols' fight to save his own life. The film reveals how close he, his wife Lorri Davis, along with his legal team, friends and supporters, came to losing that battle. But as Echols, who spent eighteen years on death row, himself has stated "... in the face of such horror, in the face of resounding grief and pain, you cannot give up... you must never give up."moreless

    Der Film der oscarnominierten Filmemacherin Amy Berg (2006, Bester Dokumentarfilm, Deliver Us From Evil) in Zusammenarbeit mit dem mehrfach oscarprämierten Gespann von Peter Jackson und Fran Walsh (2003, Bester Film & Bestes adaptiertes Drehbuch, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King), West of Memphis erzählt die unbekannte Geschichte hinter dem außergewöhnlichen und verzweifelten Kampf, den Staat Arkansas davon abzuhalten einen unschuldigen Mann zu töten. Erzählt und produziert von denen, die es erlebt haben, Damien Echols und Lorri Davis, deckt der Film neue Beweise auf im Zusammenhang mit den Morden an drei achtjährigen Jungen 1993 in der Kleinstadt West Memphis, Arkansas und enthüllt die Fehlurteile, durch welche die drei Teenagern 18 Jahre ihres Lebens im Gefängnis verloren, für Verbrechen, die sie nicht begangen hatten.moreless
