Nick Broomfield, The Grim Sleeper



In a career that stretches back 40 years Nick Broomfield’s personal documentary investigations have won awards (Soldier Girls, Aileen: The Life and Death of a Serial Killer), prompted controversy (Kurt & Courtney), and become a brand in itself. Tales of the Grim Sleeper, which was shown at the Telluride, Toronto, and New York film festivals, tells the astonishing story of how a serial killer operated with impunity for 25 years in LA’s South Central, simply because his victims were not considered worthy enough of police interest. A devastating exposé of police inaction, the film examines issues of race, class, and institutional injustice.
