Featuring Jessie Miskelly, Damien Wayne Echols, Jason Baldwin ; additional participants.Summary: "The landmark HBO documentary that sparked an international movement to "Free the West Memphis Three", Paradise Lost [: the child murders at Robin Hood Hills] investigates the gruesome 1993 murder of three eight-year-old boys and the three teenagers accused of killing them as part of a Satanic ritual. From real-life courtroom drama and clandestine jailhouse interviews to behind-the-scenes strategy meetings and intimate moments with grief-stricken families, acclaimed filmmakers Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky were granted unprecendented access to all the players involved, capturing the events as they unfolded. Revelations explores the shocking aftermath of the trials, updating the story seven years after the murders. With Echols on death row and Baldwin and Misskelley serving life sentences, Purgatory picks up the story and delves even further into the horrifying crime with fresh insights that only the passage of time can provide. Facts are reexamined, new evidence is revealed and new suspects are scrutinized. One of the most celebrated series in American documentary, these films tear the lid off a notorious murder case and create a portrait of the American justice system that is, at turns, terrifying, heartbreaking and mesmerizing, ultimately demonstrating the power of cinema to effect social change"--Back of container.
