'West of Memphis' debuts at Sundance today

Posted By on Fri, Jan 20, 2012 at 4:47 PM

"West of Memphis," the new documentary about the West Memphis Three case produced by Damien Echols, Lorri Davis, "Lord of the Rings" director Peter Jackson and his partner Fran Walsh and directed by Amy Berg, will undoubtedly make another big film-festival-circuit splash when it debuts at the Sundance Film Festival today in Park City, Utah. All five screenings of the film are currently wait-list only for tickets, according to the Sundance website. The festival runs Jan. 19 - 29.

For those not lucky enough to be hobbing and nobbing in Park City over the next few days, here's a very insightful Q&A Peter Jackson did about the film with Deadline New York. Can't wait to see this one.
