Australian filmmaker Kitty Green’s latest documentary Casting JonBenet has been acquired by Netflix ahead of its screening at Sundance Film Festival later this month. Green made a mark with her 2013 documentary Ukraine is Not a Brothel, earning prizes from the Australian Academy (AACTA) and Venice Film Festival and nominations at major film festivals including London, Berlin and SXSW.

Casting JonBenet is a stylish documentary with a unique take on the case involving the death of a six year-old beauty queen Jon Benet Ramsey and the effects on the local community and popular culture.
