JB: Yes, indeed; you did a fine job. That's exactly what I took away from the film. Thanks so much for talking with me, Yoav. It's been a pleasure. Good luck with the story in its next iteration as a Hollywood blockbuster. Can't wait to see it!

SYNOPSIS: "Crime After Crime" premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and earned 25 awards in the US and abroad. It is the exclusive documentary film on the dramatic legal battle to free Debbie Peagler, a woman imprisoned for over a quarter century due to her connection to the murder of the man who abused her. She finds her only hope for freedom when two rookie attorneys with no background in criminal law step forward to take her case. The film is now inspiring a movement to pass laws that can help prevent victims of domestic violence from being wrongfully incarcerated.


~"MAGNIFICENT, swelling from hushed to howling without the help of narration or posturing from the unfailingly dignified Ms. Peagler or her quietly dedicated lawyers. There may well be, as one of her lawyers claims, "thousands and thousands of Debbies across the U.S.,' but it is this particular one who makes it difficult to leave the theater with dry eyes and an untouched heart."

- The New York Times (Critics' Pick)


~"AN INCREDIBLE INSIDE STORY."

- San Francisco Chronicle


~"HARROWING, MOVING and INSPIRING, Crime After Crime introduces an unforgettable screen heroine in Peagler, who transcends the forces arrayed against her with uncommon strength and grace."

- The Washington Post
