'TIL DEATH DO US PART| 57mins

A one-hour documentary about the life and near-death of Kenneth Foster, a young man who gained the worldâ€™s attention and respect for his fight against the Texas courts, which sentenced him to death despite the fact that he never committed murder.
His 11-year battle to reverse this decision was granted only six hours before he was due to be executed, when Texas governor Rick Perry, for the first time ever commuted a death penalty sentence on humanitarian grounds. The documentary, narrated by Kenneth Foster himself from prison, provides a strong media statement for the international anti-death penalty campaign.
