Description

***About the event

On World Day Against the Death Penalty, Amnesty International UK will be showing the new documentary film 'The Penalty' simultaneously in London and here in Sheffield, in an event supported by the University of Sheffield School of English. The event is open to both students and members of the public. As well as the film showing we hope to link up with London for a Q&A.


***About 'The Penalty'

Three extraordinary people embark on journeys of recovery, discovery and rebellion and find themselves centre stage in the biggest capital punishment crisis in modern memory.

'The Penalty' is a feature documentary film following three people with extraordinary experiences of America's modern death penalty and goes behind the scenes of capital punishment's most recent headlines. The film is directed by Will Francome (In Prison My Whole Life, Sundance 2008) and Mark Pizzey (who together Raindance Award Winner One For Ten), and edited by James Scott (Sundance Special Jury Award for Editing award 2015 for How to Change the World).
