Netflix is yet again adding to their already tremendous slate of true crime documentaries with two new true crime documentaries. First we have Spanish film “Murder by the Coast” on June 23rd and then an American docuseries “Heist” on July 14th.
Murder by the Coast
In 1999, teen Rocío Wanninkhof is murdered. Her mother’s ex-partner, Dolores Vázquez, is sent to prison without solid evidence to prove her guilt. Influenced by a strong discriminatory campaign, Spanish public opinion wanted to find a culprit. When the lifeless body of another teenager, Sonia Carabantes, appears in 2003, the police catch the real murderer, but by then society has already turned the page. The film covers multiple perspectives of the case: judicial, political, media and gender.
From Dirty Robber—the producers behind 2021’s Oscar-winning Best Short Film Two Distant Strangers—and Emmy nominated director Derek Doneen, comes a new Netflix documentary series chronicling three of the biggest heists in modern American history, as explained by the people who pulled them off.
A 21-year-old woman steals millions in Vegas casino cash. An aspiring father swipes a fortune from the Miami airport… and uses TV shows to learn how to get away with it. A Kentucky dad is accused of one of the biggest bourbon burglaries in history.
