2nd Murder by Numbers Film Festival


When the death penalty is mentioned, what comes to your mind? 

A scaffold, a hangman’s noose, stoning, an electric chair, lethal injection , or bullets?

When death row inmates are mentioned, what comes to your mind? 

A devil, a monster, or an ill-fated person?

What steps do you think are involved in the death penalty? 

Prosecution, judgment, execution, and finally justice?

The 2nd Murder by Numbers Film Festival will bring you 

the truth behind the death penalty.
