PNRNetworks and eCinemaBoston are pleased to announce that we are teaming with the 8th annual Salem Film Fest to co-sponsor two films coming to this exciting and growing all-documentary festival.
MUGSHOT (co-sponsored with Zingerplatz Pictures) takes a look at the history of the mugshot, and how a tool once limited to law enforcement has become a cultural icon, especially where today’s celebrity culture takes hold.

WHO TOOK JOHNNY (co-sponsored with the Salem Waterfront Hotel) is an examination into the infamous thirty-year-old cold case behind the disappearance of Iowa paperboy Johnny Gosch, the first missing child to appear on a milk carton.
