About the Movie

In 1991, Cameron Todd Willingham’s three daughters died in a Corsicana, Texas house fire. Tried and convicted for their arson murders, Willingham spent twelve years on death row, and was executed despite overwhelming expert criticism of the prosecution's arson evidence. Today, Willingham's name has become a call for reform in the field of forensics and a rallying cry for the anti-death penalty movement; yet he remains an indisputable "monster" in the eyes of Texas Governor Rick Perry, who ignored the science that could have saved Willingham's life. Equal parts murder mystery, forensic investigation and political drama, the critically acclaimed, award-winning film INCENDIARY documents the haunted legacy of a prosecution built on "folklore."

Fresh: Mr. Martin is confident in his convictions. The filmmakers are confident about their science. Justice, this strong documentary asserts, is at risk in the division. – David DeWitt, New York Times, Oct 6, 2011

Fresh: Incendiary: The Willingham Case is a frequently unsettling account of how dubious "science" possibly led to an irreversible miscarriage of justice. – Joe Leydon, Variety, Oct 4, 2011

Fresh: Alarming viewing for anyone who cares about the American justice system. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Nov 19, 2011

Rotten: Raises interesting and important questions but suffers from poor organization and glosses over or ignores inconvenient facts. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Oct 7, 2011
