Famed movie director Peter Jackson decided to shoot a documentary on the subject, called West Of Memphis: Voices For Justice. Amongst others, Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder and Patti Smith used their songs for various benefit activities for the case. Johnny Depp's version of "Little Lion Man", as well as all the other songs on the soundtrack, played an important role in the life of prime suspect Damien Echols whose innocence was proven in 2011. After eighteen years in prison, he declared: "Music has always played a huge role in my life. In my early years, it allowed me to escape the crushing poverty I was born into. Then, when I was put on trial, it was the music they used against me. My love of heavy metal was considered 'proof' that I was evil and a satanic murderer. And then, ultimately, it was music that helped to free me."
