Netflix has released a haunting trailer for Casting JonBenét, Kitty Green’s unconventional documentary about the unsolved murder of the 6-year-old pageant queen JonBenét Ramsey.

Unlike a standard true-crime documentary, Green’s film doesn’t focus on the objective details of the infamous 20-year-old case but instead holds up a mirror to the public’s enduring fascination with it — and ultimately goes through the looking glass.

Shooting over 15 months in Ramsey’s hometown of Boulder, Colo., Green auditioned local actors to portray Ramsey and her family members in various dramatizations, each one reflecting people’s own interpretations of the crime. The result is darkly kaleidoscopic, blurring fact and fiction while revealing how and why the case still resonates.

Watch the trailer above, and see the poster below.
