Netflix: September 8, 2017, Rafay/Burns case

Adding to the astonishingly popular “Making A Murderer”, and to “Fight For Justice: David & Me”, Ray Klonsky and Marc Lamy’s documentary about David McCallum (which Netflix bought from Markham Street Films), Netflix has commissioned a series on wrongful convictions beginning with a segment on the Rafay/Burns case to appear next month. The segment is coming at a good time and should augment the investigative work now being done on the case. Kelly Loudenberg, the director, has done extensive interviews, especially with people not seen before in relation to Rafay/Burns. I think it will turn more than a few heads and make skeptics reconsider their views.

It comes out Sept. 8 and is called “The Confession Tapes” and the individual episode is called “True East”. It’s the only episode that is two parts and it is the first episode on this Netflix series.

I am a former Toronto teacher and writer now living in Vancouver. I work with Dr. Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter, with whom I published Eye of the Hurricane: My path from Darkness to Freedom (Chicago review Press, 2011), as Director of Media Relations and as an advocate for wrongly convicted prisoners. Other publication credits include Songs of Aging Children (Arsenal Pulp Press, 1992) a book of short stories about troubled youth, and Taking Steam, a play co-authored with the late Brian Shein, staged at New York's Jewish Repertory Theatre and Toronto in 1983. Life Without (Quattro Books, 2012) is a novella about a New York cab driver wrongly convicted of killing his pregnant wife. Gary Geddes (Lt. Governor's Award for Literary Excellence) described it as "one of the most brilliant and harrowing short novels I've read since I went on a John Hawkes binge."

  1. Wow! This is great news, and I wish everyone involved in the case for Atif/Rafay wonderful results. I am excited in anticipation of this release.

    The “injustices in the justice system” movement seems to be making headway thanks to strong efforts like these from Innocents Projects and film. Not only are these defendants factually innocent – there are multiple lines of evidence exonerating them.

    • Hello Margaret,
      I would recommend you watch the two segments. As to what’s going on now, I am not in a position to give you specific details. I will confirm, however, that there is an ongoing investigation.
