The 'Abducted In Plain Sight' Director Wants To Make A Sequel
We might be getting another chapter of the terrifying true crime documentary.
Abducted In Plain Sight was first released in 2017 but gained popularity when it dropped on Netflix earlier this month.
The film tells the chilling story of Jan Broberg, a 12-year-old from a religious Idaho family who was abducted -- twice -- by her next-door neighbour, Robert Berchtold in the 1970s.
Filmmaker Skye Borgman has said that because of the complexity of the bizarre case, she's keen to make a sequel to the true crime doco.
Borgman told Vanity Fair that the Broberg family's trusting -- and forgiving -- nature towards the man who kidnapped their daughter had a lot to do with their Mormon faith.
In the new interview, Borgman said that she wants "to explore the different topics that we didn’t have time to really dive deep into, like the role that faith plays-- maybe not even just L.D.S.--but the role that faith plays in sheltering communities,” said Borgman.
"Also grooming and brainwashing--there are really interesting, intricate things that happen, and we touch on both of those topics in the documentary, but I’d love to explore those more. I guess in a perfect world, it’d be sort of a trilogy of films.”
Borgman said the two extra films would ideally go ahead if she can pull funding together -- which is good news for true crime fans who have a lot of unanswered questions about the bizarre 1970s case.
