“Amanda Knox”
Available Starting on Friday, September 30 on Netflix

          Was she a cold-blooded psychopath who brutally murdered her roommate or a naive student abroad trapped in an endless nightmare? In the Netflix Original Documentary Amanda Knox, directors Rod Blackhurst (Tribeca Audience Award–winner Here Alone) and Brian McGinn (IDA Award–winner Chef’s Table) and producer Mette Heide (Peabody Award–winner India’s Daughter) explore the notorious case that made headlines around the world.

          After being convicted of murder in the Italian courts for the death of British student Meredith Kercher, Amanda was eventually exonerated. The documentary includes interviews with many of the key participants. You can see how a false conviction can occur when the chief prosecutor, Guiliano, seemingly introduced his gut feelings as evidence. Thankfully, this could never occur in the U.S. courts.
