Documentary, if funded, will focus on Dallas exonerees who founded House of Renewed Hope
They set up a Kickstarter page to fund its production.
DALLAS NPR produced a feature on several Dallas exonerees who've launched a nonprofit group, the House of Renewed Hope, aimed at investigating possible innocence cases and pressing for innocence reforms. See the rather extensive story that ran yesterday on All Things Considered. The NPR piece grew out of an earlier story by Michael May on the same topic in The Texas Observer. More from May here.
Notably, documentarian Jamie Meltzer from Stanford University is teaming up with Michael May, the author of the NPR story, to produce a film titled Freedom Fighters. They're attempting to crowd-source the start-up funds. Go to their Kickstarter page if you want to contribute to the project.
