Groundbreaking Film Event Takes the Audience to the Front Row of an Execution.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 14, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- During a 2 week coast-to-coast tour select theaters across America will become execution chambers as the audience is invited to enter the witness room and sit front and center for the final days of a man's life on death row and ultimately his execution in the electric chair. Producers say that "EXECUTION: RIGHT OR WRONG? YOU DECIDE." is an important film event that will make a great impact in the ongoing debate over the death penalty in America by allowing the audience to spend the final days of a man's life on death row and ultimately witness his execution. Considering the fact that California voters have decided against repealing the death penalty the hope is that this unique film plays an even bigger role in the death penalty issue by creating serious debate between both sides. The film's director Steven Scaffidi, who claims to be on the fence about the issue, says, "I want to put the audience on the front row and let them decide for themselves if executing a human being is right or wrong?" He wants his film to make a difference and points to a statement that Sister Helen Prejean, subject of "Dead Man Walking", made to him at a death penalty gathering in Louisiana: "The best way to stop executions is for people to witness one."
