The 74-year old Polanski is living in France, and is unable to return to the U.S. due to the risk of arrest.

The new documentary looks at the arrest of Polanski on the charges of statutory rape in 1977.

The arrest came following a complaint filed by the mother of a 13-year old girl.

The documentary was done by Marina Zenovich, who manages to truly challenge the perception of the media, the judges, etc.

It should be interesting to say the least when it airs and reveals more on the case and how it was carried out.
