Watch Documentary Film “Letters From Death Row” featuring Charles

Oct. 10, 2022 marked the 20th World Day Against the Death Penalty.  On this occasion, the first broadcast of the new documentary film, “Letters from death row,” took place on the Catholic TV channel, KTO.

The documentary by Leo Brezin illuminates the role of epistolary exchanges in the struggle for abolition.  Through the accounts of  lawyers, those who had formerly been on death row, a philosopher, a spiritual advisor, and members of ACAT-France, a kaleidoscope of diverse, but complementary,  perspectives reveals the somber journey of those condemned to death.  Everywhere in the world where it is still used, the death penalty affects disproportionately disadvantaged people, mainly those who belong to ethnic, religious, economic, and sexual minorities.  In the U.S., many activists, through the intercession of ACAT-France, try to help these people via epistolary exchanges.

Although Charles himself appears only through an image and one of his letters, one of his supporters and one of his lawyers make appearances.

  1. Miss you loads and I hope that you’re doing as good as you can be, loved your letters and the bits and bobs you sent me, i still have you in my prayers at end of the day, should you ever want to write to me anytime i would enjoy receiving them, is anything happening with your case yet, i still live at same address, so many questions to ask you, i keep looking online hoping it will give me a clue of how you are doing, and that you are now on the other side of the wall, Debbie xx
