Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer - True Crime Tuesdays | Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema | Tuesday, 13. February 2018

True Crime Tuesdays: All is not what it seems in this six-part doc series, all accompanied by special guest discussions.

Serial killer Aileen Wuornos murdered seven men between 1989 and 1990 and was sentenced to death. Nick Broomfield's second documentary on Wuornos focuses on her last days leading up to her 2002 execution featuring an exclusive final interview. What's apparent is that she's not of sound mind. She contradicts herself, makes bizarre statements and is clearly unwell and yet she's cleared as sane and executed. Broomfield pays special attention to her difficult childhood that led to her running away when she was 13, creating a challenging portrait of the making and unmaking of a serial killer in the American justice system.

A special guest will be in attendance for a Q&A with film critic and author Geoff Pevere.

Tickets: $17 (Members: $12, $10, Free)

Co-presented by Toronto True Crime Film Festival.
