On 25th February, Ciné-ONU will be screening Lindy Lou, Juror Number 2 to mark the 7th World Congress against the Death Penalty.

Lindy Lou Juror Number 2 CineONU

For 20 years, Lindy has lived with an unbearable feeling of guilt. Committed to fulfilling her civic duty, Lindy sat with 11 other people on a jury that handed down the death penalty to a Mississippi man convicted of a double homicide. An overwhelming feeling of regret compels Lindy to track down her fellow jurors. A conservative, religious woman from the South, she manages to tackle this topic with humour, an open mind and sincere curiosity. This screening is organised in partnership with Together against the Death Penalty (ECPM) and the United Nations Human Rights Office of the High Commissioner, Europe (OHCHR).

The screening will be followed by a conversation with guest speakers: Florent Vassault,  Director of ‘Lindy Lou, Juror Number 2’; Sandrine Ageorges-Skinner, activist against the death penalty, and wife of death row prisoner Hank Skinner; Paul d’Auchamp, UN Human Rights Deputy Regional Representative for Europe; moderated by Petra Hongell, Information Officer at UNRIC.
