The New York Times reports that Jessie Misskelley, Damien Echols and Jason Baldwin will be in attendance when the latest version of “Paradise Lost 3: Purgatory” debuts at the 49th annual New York Film Festival on Monday night. The third film in the “Paradise Lost” trilogy was nearing completion when filmmakers Bruce Sinofsky and Joe Berlinger had to hustle to Jonesboro in August when plans to release the West Memphis Three were revealed. The New York City event will be the first time the film has been shown with a new ending reflecting the release of the WM3.
HBO plans to show “Purgatory” sometime next year. The Arkansas Premiere of the film will be at the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival on Friday, Oct. 21 at 8:35 p.m. Tickets are sure to go fast.
