Netflix’s CASTING JONBENET to receive its European Premiere at this years BERLIN INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL
DIRECTOR KITTY GREEN AS WELL AS PRODUCERS JAMES SCHAMUS AND SCOTT MACAULAY IN ATTENDANCE
Netflix have announced that the director KITTY GREEN as well as producers SCHAMUS & SCOTT MACAULAY will be available for interviews on the occasion of the forthcoming European premiere of CASTING JONBENET at the prestigious Berlin International Film Festival!
Casting JonBenet is a sly and stylised exploration of the world’s most sensational child-murder case, the still unsolved death of six-year-old American beauty queen, JonBenet Ramsey. After years of media speculation and public fascination, audiences are presented with a documentary hybrid examining the macabre legacy of this tiny starlet. Over 15 months, the filmmakers traveled to the Ramseys’ Colorado hometown to elicit responses, reflections and even performances from the local community. In doing so, Casting JonBenet examines how this crime and its resulting mythologies have shaped the attitudes and behaviour of successive generations of parents and children.
Produced by Green (Ukraine is Not a Brothel; and The Face of Ukraine: Casting Oksana Baiul, which premiered at Sundance in 2015 where it was awarded the short film non-fiction jury prize), Scott Macaulay (Raising Victor Vargas; Gummo) and James Schamus (Brokeback Mountain; The Ice Storm).
