Shot on location over the course of 7 years in London, Perugia, Florence and Seattle, this is the definitive documentary of Europe’s most sensational murder case.
From the day of the tragic murder of British student Meredith Kercher in Perugia through seven years of trials in Italy to the dramatic final verdict in Florence in 2015, this documentary features exclusive trial footage and police film, as well as in-depth interviews with the key players (such as Congolese bar owner Patrick Lumumba, the friends of Amanda, leading forensic scientists on the case and the Italian prosecutors).
Employing unique cinematographic visuals such as aerial drone footage of the crime scene, the full HD film contrasts the ancient and mysterious atmosphere of Perugia with the modern steel and glass of Seattle and London. It takes a broad, balanced view of the investigation and trials, putting key aspects in context through interviews with journalists who covered the case from the beginning and the magistrates who personally handled the investigation. The raw emotion and grief of the British victim's family contrasts with the polished American public relations machine defending Amanda Knox.
A prominent African American journalist addresses the troubling race factors that cloud the point of view of Rudy Guede. This unflinching documentary tells the whole story of Europe's most high profile murder case and reveals why the thorny mix of class, race, culture and crime has fascinated the public for years.
