2016 Alumni

Expected to Attend: Nov. 11- Rod Blackhurst, Brian McGinn

The 2007 murder of British exchange student Meredith Kercher in Perugia, Italy is a case study in the vagaries of crime and punishment. Seattle native Amanda Knox was convicted for the crime and spent four years in prison before being exonerated. This gripping, atmospheric film revisits the story with unprecedented access to its key players and poses troubling questions as to why both the legal system and outside observers got so much wrong.
