DEATH ROW

USA, 1979 (MIFF 1980, Programme 54)

Director: Bruce Jackson

Death Row is the most unknown prison: outsiders rarely see it, those who live there rarely tell of it. This film shows what happens in the daily life of the Row. It also contains segments of prisoners and staff talking about how the men fight their cases, pass their days, and manage to survive.
