The People vs. The Death Penalty Film Series

To support this project be sure to use this DONATE link or the one below.



We are raising funds to make a documentary series about the people impacted by the death penalty and those fighting to finally abolish it in USA. We will be creating 8 compelling mini-documentaries each one focusing on the voices of experience including The Executioner, The Exonerated, The Politician, The Mother, The Brother and more.

In crowdfunding this we have some rewards planned for everyone who joins us in this effort to create this powerful series. * Raising funds here instead of Kickstarter/Gofundme means that we avoid thousands of $ in associated fees.

  • Donations Over $100 - series credit (+ digital download)
