Just, Melvin

Directed by James Ronald Whitney

The final film in our presentation of the Sheffield International Documentary Festival on Tour, this is also the toughest. JUST, MELVIN has been winning glowing praise for its harrowing portrait of Melvin Just, a man who abused almost every member of two families. Director Whitney has managed to leaven this disturbing story of incest and murder with humour and warmth, even more surprising considering his vow to see its protagonist (his grandfather) either dead or imprisoned for life by the end of the film.”Easily the most jaw dropping documentary to come along in a decade.” Aaron Gell
