ESPN’s ‘OJ: Made in America’ Documentary Event Set to Screen in LA, NYC Theaters This Weekend
ESPN Films announced Friday that its “OJ: Made in America” documentary will play at the Cinema Village in New York City and Laemmle theater in Santa Monica, California, from May 20-26.
The epic seven hour, 43 minute doc will show on two screens per day at each theater. Given the length of the project, they will show Parts 1 and 2 of the film, then break for approximately 15-20 minutes. Then Parts 3 and 4 will be shown, followed by another 15-20 minute break, concluding with Part 5.
The full feature premiered at the Sundance Film Festival on Jan. 22, playing in its entirety with a lunch break in the middle.
Directed by Peabody and Emmy winner Ezra Edelman, “O.J.: Made in America” is the first miniseries event for ESPN Film’s highly-acclaimed “30 for 30” brand.
The episodic documentary tells the defining cultural tale of 20th-century America by exploring the themes of race and celebrity by tracing a personal journey, from how O.J. Simpson first became a football star, to why the country fell in love with him off the field, to his being accused of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her acquaintance, Ron Goldman, his subsequent acquittal and why he is sitting in jail 20 years later for another crime.
