The October issue of Texas Monthly features Innocence Lost, by Pamela Colloff, an excellent in-depth look at the probable wrongful murder conviction and (so far) 18-year incarceration of Anthony Graves, who most likely did not commit the crime.
To accompany and augment this story of legal injustice, Pamela Hastings produced a compelling short video documentary, Reasonable Doubt -- a task made more difficult by the fact that she had to reconstruct most of the narrative: "I made it with no budget," she says, "with less than optimal equipment, and had to use mostly old, found images to tell the story."
