The exonerated ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The undeniable power of the true stories of six exonerated survivors of death row will engage your emotion, incite your passion, and envelope you in their search for the lost pieces of dignity and the lives that were interrupted. The Exonerated began its journey over the summer of 2000, when authors Jessica Blank and Erik Jensen traveled across the United States, interviewing 40 of the (then) 89 former death row prisoners. They went as far south as Texas and Miami, as far north as Chicago and just about everywhere in between to meet the people whose stories appear in The Exonerated. The interviewees were from vastly different ethnic, religious and educational backgrounds. Their views on the world varied greatly. The only thing that they had in common was that all 40 had been sentenced to death, spent anywhere from 2 to 22 years on death row and were subsequently found innocent and freed by the state

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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
