In the Executioner’s Shadow is aimed at a general audience and strives to engage and inform the American public with a revealing examination of capital punishment and justice. The film producers plan to show the documentary at key filmmaker meetings around the country and to pursue a national broadcast on PBS. In addition, the filmmakers anticipate that organizations, educators, and policy makers will use the film as a catalyst for discussion. The content also will reach diverse audiences through social media.
