A Story of Justice, Injustice, And The Death Penalty. Directed by Maggie Burnette Stogner (60 min.)
In the Executioner's Shadow takes a penetrating look at the consequences of the death penalty through three powerful stories - the rare perspective of a former state executioner who comes within days of executing an innocent person; a Boston Marathon bombing victim who struggles to decide what justice really means; and the parents of a murder victim who choose to fight for the life of their daughter’s killer. As the battle to overturn capital punishment comes to a head in the U.S., this provocative film challenges viewers to question their deepest beliefs about justice.
Q&A / panel discussion to follow.
