Titled Believe Her and Suspect Her, the two opposing viewpoint trailers feature the main subjects speaking in their words. Was she a cold-blooded psychopath who brutally murdered her roommate or a naive study abroad student trapped in an endless nightmare? In the docu, directors Rod Blackhurst (Here Alone) and Brian McGinn (Chef’s Table) and producer Mette Heide (India’s Daughter) explore the notorious case that made worldwide headlines.
Knox was twice convicted and twice acquitted by Italian courts of the brutal killing of her British roommate Meredith Kercher. With access to the key people involved and never-before-seen archival material, the film shifts between past to present, exploring the nearly decade-long case in exclusive interviews with Amanda Knox, her former co-defendant and ex-boyfriend Raffaele Sollecito, Italian prosecutor Giuliano Mignini and Daily Mail reporter Nick Pisa.
The film will make its world premiere at the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9 and will launch globally on Netflix on September 30. Check out both trailers below:
