THE STAIRCASE

DOCUMENTARY 45 Minutes International Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE STAIRCASE
On December 9, 2001, in Durham, North Carolina, a 911 call summoned police to Kathleen Peterson’s house, where they discovered her lifeless body at the foot of a staircase. Her husband, Michael, a local public figure and successful novelist, quickly becomes the prime suspect. In October 2003, as his distraught children look on, Michael Peterson is sentenced to life in prison for the murder of his wife. Twelve years after his five-month trial ends with a life sentence, four years after a startling twist wins him release under house arrest, Michael Peterson now faces his final trial.

After the screening: A conversation with creator and director Jean-Xavier de Lestrade and producers Matthieu Belghiti and Allyson Luchak. Moderated by Cynthia Littleton.
