False Confessions


Directed by Katrine Philp

Would you confess to a crime you did not commit? 

Each year innumerable American suspects do, and experts say that trained interrogators can get anybody to confess to anything. 


Defense attorney Jane Fisher-Byrialsen is determined to put an end to interrogation techniques that all too often pressure innocent people into false confessions that lead to prison cells. 

False Confessions tells the story of four false confession cases that Jane is fighting. Through these personal stories, the film looks at the psychological aspect of why people end up confessing to crimes they have not committed and the consequences of these confessions - for those accused, for their families and for society at large.
