Here is an excerpt from a new article in the Los Angeles Times:
In a videotaped introduction, Peter Jackson, from New Zealand, addressed the purpose of this new project.
“In many respects, we regard this movie as a work in progress,” Jackson said. “What you’ll see tonight is finished, but it’s not an ending that anybody likes, it’s not an ending that brings justice to this case in any form. There is no justice for three wrongfully convicted men and equally importantly there is no justice for the three murdered little boys and their families. The state of Arkansas has been willful in the way it is just trying to stick its head in the sand.
“Hopefully, if this film can do anything at all it is to publicly and politically embarrass the people in Arkansas," Jackson added, "all of whom are much more interested in getting votes and getting elected than they are in justice. I’m hoping the film will go some way toward exoneration for the three wrongfully convicted men and justice for the three little boys.”
