Even-handed and intensive, this docuseries about the life of athlete and murder suspect Oscar Pistorius is a worthy addition to the canon of ESPN 30 for 30 Films, taking a close look at the moments that lead to the vicious and bloody death of 29-year-old model Reeva Steenkamp.
“The story of Oscar Pistorius is remarkable in its complexity. It’s at once inspirational and harrowing, and provides a lens of insight into a breadth of issues – from gender based violence to disability rights, racial inequality and media frenzy,” said director Daniel Gordon (George Best: All By Myself) in a press release. “My hope is that the film gives audiences additional context and layers to a story they think they know.”
All four episodes — more than five hours of television — will be available to watch Sunday, Sept. 27th on ESPN+. The end has a shocking twist that you won’t see coming. Watch the trailer below.
