Academy Award and eight-time Emmy nominated filmmaker Joe Berlinger is one the leading nonfiction filmmakers of his generation and a pioneer in the genre of true crime documentaries. He has directed and produced landmark films such as: Brother’s Keeper, a Sundance and DGA Award-winner that broke new ground with its narrative storytelling techniques, Under African Skies, an Emmy-winning A&E Indie film about Paul Simon’s controversial recording of the seminal Graceland album during South Africa’s Apartheid regime, and Some Kind of Monster, an intimate portrait of Metallica that redefined the rockumentary genre and won the Independent Spirit Award. His Paradise Lost Trilogy, an HBO feature documentary series that led to the 2011 release of the wrongfully convicted West Memphis 3 after 18 and a half years on Arkansas’ death row, earned Berlinger multiple Emmy and Peabody awards, as well as an Academy Award Nomination.
