The Murder Workers
  • Year2013
  • Duration72 min

The Murder Workers is a powerful and insightful Cutting Edge documentary exploring a side of murder that most people know very little about. It follows members of Victim Support’s National Homicide team as they work closely with families who have been bereaved by murder or manslaughter. The Murder Workers offer practical and emotional support for families at different stages of bereavement from the initial shock right up until the steps needed to start re-building their lives again. The families are often thrown into a world of police investigations forced to navigate the deeply confusing world of the criminal system and it is the Murder Worker’s responsibility to guide them through this difficult time. Directed by Jessie Versluys – who produced the award-winning Katie: My Beautiful Face – this documentary goes behind the headlines to observe the extraordinary strength needed to fight, survive and heal the traumatic events of a murder from the eyes of The Murder Workers. ‘leaves you with admiration for those who take on such a challenging but essential role.’- Metro
