Oscar–nominated director Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil) offers an inside look at the “West Memphis 3,” exploring how Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley were wrongfully convicted and imprisoned. The film chronicles the movement to prove their innocence, which involved everyone from grassroots supporters to celebrities such as Peter Jackson, Eddie Vedder and Johnny Depp. Their determination is a case study in the power of hope. Courtesy of Sundance Selects
