The Singh Case: A Long Journey to the Truth – 2022

5 x 52'

Documentary

Jaitsen Singh’s wife and daughter were brutally murdered in California in 1983. Singh was convicted of soliciting the killings yet has proclaimed his innocence ever since.

Exclusive access to police and court documents reveals a dramatic case involving racial bias, corrupt prosecution, a mistress and a dubious crown witness. How did Jaitsen Singh’s American dream turn into an American nightmare? And if innocent of this crime, how innocent is Singh really? Filmmaker Hans Pool explores the complex case.

Why we like it:

The perfect recipe for a gripping true crime story: a shocking double murder which remains unclear for many, and a filmmaker-turned-detective who uncovers more than he expected.
