Melbourne Documentary Film Festival presents a selection of True Crime, and Health and Wellbeing films.
ABDUCTED IN PLAIN SIGHT
Directed by: Skye Borgman
This story is told through re-creations and interviews with the FBI, Berchtold’s brother and Jan’s parents who make troubling, stunning and gut-wrenching revelations for the first time publicly. Abducted in Plain Sight reveals epic failures and untold personal dramas that point to the biggest tragedy of all – that the crimes could have been prevented.
