The Penalty – Special Preview Screening
By WILL FRANCOME AND MARK PIZZEY. The screening will be followed by a debate with Will Francome and Laura Shacham.
From the team behind One For Ten comes a feature documentary to lift the lid on the human cost of the death penalty in the United States. The Penalty follows three people caught in the crosshairs of capital punishment, and the political landscape that could decide their fate.
Going behind the scenes of some of the biggest headlines in the history of America’s death penalty, the film follows the lethal injection protocol crisis that resulted in a botched execution; the rehabilitation of a man who spent 15 years on death row for a crime he didn’t commit, and the family of a young woman – brutally murdered – split by the state’s pursuit of the ultimate punishment.
