IFC Films is celebrating the release of its new experimental independent documentary, ‘The Jeffrey Dahmer Files,’ with the debut of new clips and photos. The film, which was directed by Chris James Thompson, opens in a limited theatrical release today. The documentary is also available nationwide on VOD, including such platforms as Comcast, Cox, Cablevision and Time Warner, as well as SundanceNow and iTunes.
‘The Jeffrey Dahmer Files’ chronicles how in the summer of 1991, Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested in Milwaukee and sentenced to 957 years in prison for killing 17 people and dismembering their bodies. The critically-acclaimed “The Jeffrey Dahmer Files” explores the city of Milwaukee by meeting those surrounding Dahmer during and after his hidden spree. Recollections from Milwaukee Medical Examiner Jeffrey Jentzen, Police Detective Patrick Kennedy, and neighbor Pamela Bass are interwoven with archival footage and everyday scenes from Dahmer’s life, working collectively to disassemble the facade of an ordinary man leading an ordinary existence.
