In The Executioner’s Shadow

“In the Executioner’s Shadow” a newly released independent documentary by Blue Bear Films 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.
