From Academy Award® nominated filmmaker Amy Berg (Deliver Us From Evil) in collaboration with the multiple Academy Award® winning team of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, West Of Memphis tells the untold story behind an extraordinary and desperate fight to stop the State of Arkansas from killing an innocent man. Told and produced by those who lived it, Damien Echols and Lorri Davis, the film uncovers new evidence surrounding the 1993 murders of three eight-year-old boys in the small town of West Memphis, Arkansas, and exposes the wrongful conviction of three teenagers who lost 18 years of their lives imprisoned for crimes they did not commit.
