Friday, February 8th, 2019
Roseburg Public Library Ford Room
1409 NE Diamond Lake Blvd, Roseburg, OR
This film 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.
Following the 54-minute film, a discussion will follow. We want to know what you think.
