“By focusing on the experiences of a group of exonerees who are themselves learning to investigate … this project is unique. It celebrates the indomitable spirit of these men… follows a gripping storyline… and highlights the challenges and roadblocks of investigating and proving another man’s innocence. This unprecedented approach sets the film apart from other documentaries that have explored the lives of the wrongly convicted.”
Barry Scheck and Peter Neufeld, Co-founders and Co-directors, Innocence Project
“Jamie Meltzer’s documentary True Conviction was a surprising and profound experience. The film follows three exonerated men who have dedicated their lives to freeing other wrongly-accused prisoners. The men are superbly charismatic, and their passion combined with the film’s depiction of jaw-dropping corruption within the Texas judicial system makes for a rousing piece of work.”
"True Conviction is a must-see documentary, filled with as many happy tears as sad ones."
North Texas Daily
"A profound look at our judicial system through the lens of three men it nearly destroyed…True Conviction is powerful, devastating and remarkable."
