______________________________________________

In this groundbreaking test-screening event, select theaters across America and the United Kingdom become execution chambers as a limited number of audience members are 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.

The audience follows two filmmakers who spend the last week of a condemned man’s life on death row and have two very different opinions about what their film will eventually become. One wants to tell a sympathetic story of the condemned man’s final days in prison while the other wants to show the actual execution.  Ultimately, the execution is filmed with two surveillance cameras; one hidden in a ceiling vent and the other hidden on one of the death row guards.

"This movie will take you closer to an actual execution than any film ever made.  It's truly groundbreaking."
- Dr. Donald Cabana, Warden
​​
William Neal Moore, The Condemned Man, spent 16 years on Death Row and was only 7 hours from the electric chair.  He is the only self-confessed murderer under today’s law to be released from Death Row and is now an unconditional free man due in part to the forgiveness of the victim’s family and the intervention of Mother Theresa.  Mr. Moore is also the author of the book, “I Shall Not Die”, a powerful story detailing his days on death watch with only 72 hours to live.  

Mr. Moore accompanies Mr. Scaffidi to each screening and the two hold an unforgettable Q and A session following the film which always draws a big crowd.  The screenings are intense and thought-provoking and when the lights come up following the film, many are left wondering if they just witnessed an actual execution.  When asked if the execution in his film is real or not Scaffidi responds, “You decide.”  He points to a statement that Sister Helen Prejean, author 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.”

“Execution” has made an impact not only in America but in Europe as well.  Dr. Loraine Gelsthorpe, Director of Postgraduate Programmes at the University of Cambridge, raved about the screening saying, “The film prompted enormous interest and debate and there is still a buzz about it. Fantastic! Provocative. Thought-provoking.”  According to the film’s website www.executionfilm.com, the Tulane screening drew close to 1,000 people, many who stood in the rain, to see the film at McAllister Auditorium.  Laura Moye, Director of the Death Penalty Abolition Campaign for Amnesty International USA says, “This is a refreshing departure from the way capital punishment is usually portrayed in films, with an emphasis on the profound effects executions have on those most intimately involved."  She goes on to say, “Amnesty International USA encourages individuals to see this film which reflects upon one of the major human rights concerns in the USA: the use of the death penalty.”




















































EXECUTION can only be seen in select theaters.
