VenueNew York Film Festival
Since their remarkable debut with Brother’s Keeper in 1989, the team of Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky have become a major force in contemporary documentary. Impeccably crafted and engagingly narrated, their films are works that have truly made a difference–and nowhere is this more true than with the Paradise Lost trilogy. Thanks to their exposing of true travesty of American justice, the case of the three young men accused of child murders in West Memphis, Arkasas has received international publicity–and led to the possibility of their eventual exoneration. Berlinger and Sinofsky will discuss their careers and approach to filmmaking, as well as the ethics of the “activist” documentary.
