New film on wrongful convictions premieres in Toronto


“Witch Hunt,” a new film about wrongful sexual assault convictions in California, premiered this week at the Tornoto Film Festival, with its final screening set for tomorrow. The film, narrated by Sean Penn, features the cases of several people freed from prison after serving years in prison for crimes they didn’t commit. The filmmakers were joined at the premiere by lawyers from the Northern California Innocence Project and nine parents and (now grown) children featured in the film.
