Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer

Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer

Directed by Nick Broomfield

A hitch-hiking prostitute, she killed seven of her clients, and ended up on death row in the State of Florida facing the electric chair. The film raises a number of questions about official corruption, not least of which is whether in fact she is a serial killer at all, or if that label is just a commercial means of selling Aileen Wuornos and her story.

In his riveting 1992 doc, Nick Broomfield goes head to head with America's first female serial killer and her so-called allies, who are each trying to cash in on her crimes.
