Half Truths and Full Lies
Half Truths and Full Lies tells a story about story. Stories are at the heart of the American criminal legel system and jury trials are storytelling contests. Every argument is a story and every lawyer and witness are storytellers who craft a narrative from pieces of information that have been deemed evidence.
Half Truths and Full Lies explores the case of Efren Paredes, a Latinx man from Michigan sentenced to life without parole at age 15 for a murder he claims he didn't commit.
