Latest Netflix docs include films from Leonardo DiCaprio, Werner Herzog
Plus a film about Amanda Knox.
Netflix got two Oscar nods for its documentaries in 2016, and now, it’s making a major move to promote its more serious original programming.
Here’s what we know about each one so far:
- Amanda Knox—a documentary about the American student who spent almost four years in an Italian prison before being acquitted for the murder of her roommate. Rod Blackhurst (“Here Alone”) and Brian McGinn (“Chef’s Table”) directed. Available on Netflix Sept. 30.
- Into the Inferno—a film from Werner Herzog and Clive Oppenheimer about humans’ relationship with volcanoes. Available on Netflix Oct. 28.
- The Ivory Game—from executive producer Leonardo DiCaprio, a movie about Africa’s illegal ivory trade. Available on Netflix Nov. 4.
- The White Helmets—a profile of three rescue workers helping civilians in the Syrian conflict in early 2016. It’s from Orlando von Einsiedel and Joanna Natasegara, the filmmaking team behind Virunga (which Netflix acquired in 2014). Available on Netflix Sept. 16.
All four documentaries will hit the streaming service this fall after their premieres.
Netflix also has another festival documentary debut scheduled for Ava DuVernay’s The 13th this fall on the opening night of the New York Film Festival. It’s slated for release on Netflix Oct. 7.
