DEAD WOMEN WALKING

By Hagar Ben-Asher

A group of women on death row face their final moments. As described by Tribeca Film Festival’s Liza Domnitz, “Told through nine moving vignettes, each anchored by a subtle, yet overwhelming performance, Dead Women Walking traces the final days of a series of women on death row, from two weeks before one inmate’s execution to mere minutes before another’s. As these narratives develop, the human toll of the death penalty - not only on the women convicted of violent crimes, but also on their families, prison officials, and ministers and counselors coaching them through their final days - comes into clear focus. Looming over Dead Women Walking are two questions: Why did they do it? And, more implicit and rarely asked: How does society grapple with women’s violence?”
