Failed Justice: Innocent on Death Row (2018)

An inescapable truth of the death penalty is that wherever it exists there is the risk that innocent people will end up on death row. There is no perfect justice system and we know that mistakes occur wherever you are in the world. In 2016 alone at least 60 death row prisoners were exonerated globally.

This video tells the story of one prisoner, Anthony Ray Hinton, who spent 30 years on death row in Alabama for a crime he did not commit.

This video was produced in collaboration with the Equal Justice Initiative.
