Jason Baldwin Appearance at Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory Screening, Tonight at Belmont

Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory
When: 7 p.m. tonight, March 26
Where: Belmont's Bunch Library Multimedia Hall

There are a number of reasons why Damien Echols, Jessie Misskelley Jr. and Jason Baldwin — the young men popularly known as the West Memphis Three — are now free after spending 16 years in prison for a triple homicide they likely did not commit: Eddie Vedder, Peter Jackson, Johnny Depp, uh ... Zao. But before the WM3 became a cause célèbre in the most literal sense, it was Joe Berlinger and Bruce Sinofsky’s Paradise Lost documentary series that captured America’s attention.

Over the past 15 years, Berlinger and Sinofsky have tirelessly chronicled the case, culminating in the final part of their trilogy, which was hastily recut late last year when the three were suddenly released from prison. The Academy Award-nominated documentary screens for free at Belmont’s Bunch Library, with Jason Baldwin in attendance. In addition to presenting the film, Baldwin will speak to students earlier in the day, at 10 a.m. in Belmont’s Massey Boardroom.
