A documentary filmmaker who renewed interest in Roman Polanski's decades-old sex case says it's a surreal feeling to have her work referenced in the director's appeal arguments.

Marina Zenovich had a front-row seat for Thursday's hearing before a California appeals court, where Polanski's attorney argued the case should be dismissed for misconduct.

Polanski's attorney, Chad Hummel at one point told the three justices they should watch Zenovich's film, "Roman Polanski: Wanted and Desired."

Zenovich, who filmed the hearing for a follow-up documentary, says she found the spirited questioning of lawyers by justices to be "refreshing."

She says she thought the justices were trying to find the truth.

Zenovich's first Polanski documentary won two Emmy Awards after airing on HBO.
