Equal parts murder mystery, forensic investigation and political drama, INCENDIARY: The Willingham Case has captivated theatrical audiences this fall. Winner of the 2011 Louis Black Award at SXSW Film, and selected to play as a 2011 Sterling US Feature at the American Film Institute/Discovery Channel SILVERDOCS Festival 2011, INCENDIARY has been called “one of the most timely movies of the year…nonfiction filmmaking at its most classic. Crime, punishment, morality and hardball politics make for an explosive narrative mix all their own.” (Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post)
