Incendiary: The Willingham Case

Opens Friday, Oct 7, 2011 Synopsis: In 1991, three young girls died in a house fire in Corsicana, Texas. Their father, Cameron Todd Willingham, had a criminal record and a history of domestic violence; he was convicted of arson and murder, and was executed in 2004. However, while the prosecutors (and Texas governor Rick Perry) were thoroughly convinced of Willingham's guilt, the majority of the evidence presented against him was gathered by arson investigators who were not regulated by any official agency and offered speculation on the fire that often came without any hard evidence to back it up. The flaws in the forensic evidence used to convict Willingham has since become a topic of controversy in Texas, with some believing Willingham was a convenient scapegoat but not the man who set the fire, while others contend that while he was probably guilty, the prosecutors failed to prove their case. Filmmakers Steve Mims and Joe Bailey Jr. examine the evidence against Cameron Todd Willingham and the efforts to open up his case to more scientifically reliable scrutiny in the documentary Incendiary: The Willingham Case. The film was an official selection at the 2011 South by Southwest Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
