Citizen Sleuth ~ AIFF ’23
Run Time: 120 min. Rating: Not rated
“Films Worth Freezing For”
A true crime podcaster from Appalachia blurs the line between fact and entertainment as she investigates the mysterious death of a local girl. Citizen Sleuth examines the ethics of the true crime genre and how the power of narrative affects truth, victims, and communities.
“One of the best dissections of our current obsession with true crime that I’ve ever seen.” – RogerEbert.com
AIFF’s mission is to develop, promote and sustain a film festival that supports new media and independent film making in Alaska and around the world while enriching cultural and entertainment opportunities for Alaskans. Our nonprofit organization continues to play a part in expanding film screening and production opportunities throughout the state.
By bringing filmmakers from all parts of the country and world to Alaska, we want artists to connect with people they might not otherwise meet, and engage audiences in workshops, screenings, and plenty of celebratory parties.
