Documentary film explores the death penalty
Submitted By Jane Bark
The Tri-City Documentary Series presents "Into the Abyss," a timely film on the death penalty. In this fascinating exploration of a triple homicide case in Conroe, Texas, master filmmaker Werner Herzog probes the human psyche to explore why people kill-and why a state kills. He engages in intimate conversations with those involved, including 28-year-old death row inmate Michael Perry (scheduled to die within eight days of appearing on-screen). Herzog's inquiries also extend to the families of the victims and perpetrators as well as a state executioner and pastor who've been with death row prisoners as they've taken their final breaths.
A discussion will be led by Ana Zamora of SAFE CA. YES on prop 34. www.safecalifornia.org.
