Paradise Lost 3 – Purgatory

Paradise Lost 3 – Purgatory

Paradise Lost 3 – Purgatory is a the third in a series of documentaries by Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky about the West Memphis 3. The West Memphis 3 were three teenage boys who were accused and convicted of the murders of three other boys in West Memphis, Arkansas.

The first film followed the case, the conviction and talked with people in the community. The second film returned a few years later and follows the appeals process that the boys are going through, and deals with community support groups for the boys.

Purgatory focuses on their time in prison and the August 18th, 2011 release of the boys, now grown up.

Look for Purgatory to be released in January 2012.
