The Screen Guide

Casting JonBenet is a sly and stylised exploration of the world’s most sensational child-murder case, the still-unsolved death of six-year-old American beauty queen, JonBenet Ramsey. Over 15 months, the filmmakers travelled to the Ramsey’s Colorado hometown to elicit responses, reflections and performances from the local community, creating a bold work of art born from the collective memories and mythologies the crime inspired.
