The Penalty

The Penalty


Producer, Co-producer: Laura Shacham (Reel Nice)
Color: Colour
Language: English

The fates of three people, in three different places in America, are indirectly caught up in tragic circumstances ensuing from the fatality of the death penalty. This is a very personal insight into the lives of those who have found themselves caught in the centrifugal force in close proximity to this institutionalized form of murder and are having difficulty finding their way back – or rather, their way out.


Will Francome (1981) previously addressed the topic of the death penalty in the film In Prison My Whole Life (2007), which was produced by Colin Firth. Mark Pizzey (1980) is an award-winning cinematographer who focuses primarily on documentaries.
