#2 Aileen Wuornos: The Selling of a Serial Killer (1993) and Aileen: Life and Death of a Serial Killer (2003)


This 1993 doc centred on the journey of the popular filmmaker, Nick Broomfield, to interview one of the most notorious female serial killers America has ever seen, Aileen Wuornos. In this documentary, the trials and tribulations of Wuornos, as fueled by the legal system, especially the disservice of her original attorney, was carefully examined.

When Broomfield returned to Wuornos ten years later, the subject was rebirthed to Life and Death of a Serial Killer. The new series dwells on the sequence of events that led to the 2002 execution of Wuornos.
