New Jersey documentary maker Richard Behrens has undertaken the ambitious project of finding and filming some new slants to the Borden story.  He plans for a multi-part series of mini-documentaries filmed in Fall River, which will encompass many aspects of the case- some new territory included.  Using authors on the case, staff from the Borden house museum, local actors, and Borden case historians, this fresh approach is finding an appreciative audience.  To view some of Richard’s other work visit the link at
