An official selection of the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and winner of 25 awards, Crime after Crime tells the story of how a pair of young attorneys became involved with Deborah Peagler, a woman brutally abused by her boyfriend, and sentenced in 1983 to 25 years-to-life for connection to his murder. Convinced that the incontrovertible evidence that existed should free Deborah in a matter of months, Joshua Safran and his co-counsel, Nadia Costa, agreed to handle her case on a pro-bono basis. What unfolds is a journey through the nightmarish, bureaucratic rabbit hole of injustice that exists in the American criminal-justice system. The spirit, fortitude, and love all three characters marshal in the face of this wrenching marathon is nothing short of miraculous. Q&A session with the film’s producer and director, Yoav Potash, following the film.
