Culver City, CA, March 12, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Seminal Films is pleased to announce the release of The Last Word, an engaging documentary about crime, punishment, and the shocking story of an innocent man wrongly executed.
A clash between good and evil strikes up on the High Plains of Texas when Johnny Frank Garrett, a 17 year old mentally challenged boy is arrested, convicted and ultimately executed for the Halloween night rape, mutilation and murder of Sister Tadea Benz. Sixteen years after Garrett’s execution new evidence rose up from the cold case grave of the Amarillo Police Department proving they executed the wrong man.
Regardless of faith, for or against the death penalty, liberal or conservative, The Last Word compels viewers to feel not only the collective pain our societal conscience suffers for executing the innocent but also the individual fear of not knowing what margins of error our judges, jurors and executioners will find acceptable tomorrow.
Bishop Emeritus Leroy Matthieson says The Last Word is “a must see for every Christian who has an opinion about capital punishment.”
The Last Word is produced by Cinco Rosas Productions as well as Rui Da Silva and Mathius Mack Gertz of Seminal Films. It is written and directed by Jesse Quackenbush. The Last Word is available in stores now.
