CASTING JONBENET

Dir: Kitty Green
United States / Australia / 2017 / 81mins

★★★★★ "magnificent provocation to the very notion of truth" - Guardian

After 20 years of media speculation and public hysteria, the unsolved death of six-year-old American beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey remains one of the world’s most sensational child murder cases. Casting JonBenet is a genre-defying exploration of the macabre and complicated legacy of this tiny starlet.

Director Kitty Green uses a local casting call to voice her film, pulling together a collection of aspiring thespians from Ramsey’s own Colorado neighbourhood to retell the myriad theories surrounding the case. Allowing her protagonists space for personal reflection and performance, Green builds an engrossing exploration of how we construct our own versions of truth to process trauma.
