If ever a film was required viewing in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, it is The Trials of Darryl Hunt, an emotionally devastating, deeply disturbing and dramatically compelling look at the saga of Darryl Hunt—a man wrongly convicted for a brutal 1984 rape and murder who spent nearly 20 years in prison for a crime he did not commit. Darryl Hunt is not the first wrongly convicted person to be freed by DNA evidence; instead, the heartbreaking drama of the story comes from the refusal of the courts to free Mr. Hunt even when evidence had clearly exonerated him of blame. This highly acclaimed film, winner of more than 20 awards, provides a vivid example of the power of the documentary form to shed light, uncover truth and help effect change.
