In The Executioner’s Shadow Campaign

In The Executioner’s Shadow Campaign


Oregonians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty launched a campaign of screening the film “In The Executioner’s Shadow,” that was followed up with an open dialogue from attendees. The first screening was at Salem’s Grand Theater at 7pm as organized by the Salem Progressive Film Series. The film casts a penetrating look at the consequences of the death penalty. It was followed by a panel discussion featuring John Kitzhaber, Paul DeMuniz, Jeff Ellis and Frank Thompson while Emily Plec moderated the discussion. As the battle to overturn capital punishment comes to a head in the U.S., this film challenges viewers to question their beliefs about justice.

The film and panel discussion were broadcast on local access television as well as 16 events that followed.
