If you were compelled by the doco, head to the speaking tour
Chances are you've watched all ten episodes (possibly in one weekend) or had someone in your ear telling you that you should. Making a Murderer is compelling crime documentary that you can check out on Netflix. (If you haven't done so, do it. Really…. now.)
Making a Murderer is the Netflix documentary that has captivated audiences
The doco was filmed over 10 years and follows the story of Steven Avery, who spent 18 years in jail for a crime he didn't commit. The Wisconsin man was found guilty of sexual assault and attempted murder but exonerated in 2003.
As Avery sought compensation for his wrongful imprisonment, he was charged with the murder of Teresa Halbach, a photographer who had visited his property. The prosecution claimed to have damning evidence, while Avery's lawyers presented their case on the claim he was framed by police.
This November, those lawyers, Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, are presenting a speaking tour of Australia. The pair has already taken to the stage in 26 cities across the States. Of the Milwaukee show, Salon.com says: "Jerry Buting and Dean Strang were greeted with whoops and hollers as they took the stage for a 90-minute "unfiltered discussion" about the criminal justice system and the case that made them folk heroes to some, scoundrels to others, and unlikely sex symbols to still others."
