Earlier today I sat down with West of Memphis director Amy Berg, former West Memphis 3 defendant and currently free-as-a-bird Damien Echols and wife Lorri Davis. We sat at an outdoor table behind Santa Barbara’s Lobero Theatre for a little more than 20 minutes. Echols and I talked mostly about right now and what’s coming, and only a little bit about the past. I’ve posted five or six riffs about Berg’s film since Sundance so I’ll let the mp3 speak for itself.
