“In the Executioner’s Shadow” Screening

Monday, March 18 at 7pm • All Saints Cinema • 918 1/2 Railroad Avenue

In the Executioner’s Shadow casts 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. In the Executioner’s Shadow illuminates the oft hidden realities entangled in death row, the death penalty, and the U.S. Justice system at large.

Following the film there will be a panel discussion moderated by Mike Vasilinda, Capital News Service.
