The Penalty (86mins)
Three extraordinary people embark on journeys of recovery, discovery and rebellion and find themselves center stage in the biggest capital punishment crisis in modern memory. Still in competitions and showing in Ohio for the first time, this compelling documentary film follows three individuals impacted by different aspects of the death penalty: A man recently exonerated and freed from death row as he puts his life back together, a murder victim’s family as they traverse the legal process, and an attorney as he unsuccessfully struggles to keep his client alive.
The screening comes at an important time for the death penalty in Ohio. More than 25 executions are scheduled from now until 2022, the next being Raymond Tibbetts on February 13.
This event is free to attend and open to the public.
