Trailer: Netflix’s Doco “Casting JonBenet”

Netflix has premiered the trailer for Kitty Green’s upcoming documentary “Casting JonBenet” which hits the streaming service in April.

The still unsolved death of six year old American beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey became arguably the world’s most famous child murder case of the modern era – inspiring years of speculation and discussion. Now comes what’s dubbed a ‘documentary hybrid’ examining the macabre legacy of the crime.

Over fifteen months, the filmmakers traveled to the Ramseys’ Colorado hometown to elicit responses, reflections and even performances from the local community to explore how the death and its resulting mythologies have shaped the attitudes and behavior of successive generations of parents and children.
