RACE TO EXECUTION, produced and directed by Rachel Lyon of Lioness Media Arts, Inc., is a gripping documentary that offers a compelling investigation of America’s death penalty, probing how race discrimination infects our capital punishment system. The film traces the fates of two Death Row inmates – Robert Tarver in Russell County, Alabama and Madison Hobley in Chicago, Illinois. Their personal stories are enlarged and enriched by testimonies of attorneys who fought for these men’s lives, and by prosecutors, criminal justice scholars and experts in the fields of law and the media. These varied voices contribute to a thoughtful examination of the factors that influence who lives and who dies at the hands of the state.
