October 10 2017 is the 15th annual World Day Against the Death Penalty. This year the aim is to raise awareness about the reasons why people living in poverty are at a greater risk of being sentenced to death and executed.

‘Dead Man Walking’ is the true story of Sister Helen Prejean, a New Orleans nun and spiritual advisor to death row inmate, Matthew Poncelet. Poncelet appeals to Sister Prejean to maintain his innocence. ‘Dead Man Walking’ confronts the controversial issue of the death penalty and emotionally highlights all sides of the debate.

The film screening is restricted to attendees aged 15 and over.
