Werner Herzog's latest stunning documentary focuses on the powerful subject of capital punishment, following the moving story of Michael Perry and Jason Burkett, two young men found guilty of three brutal murders. Perry was executed eight days after filming commenced while Burkett was sentenced only to life in prison.
Unravelling the crime and trial from separate viewpoints, including those of the victim's families and prison staff, Herzog's masterful exploration of life on Death Row shows the devastating effects on all involved.
Winner of the Grierson Award for Best Documentary at the London Film Festival, INTO THE ABYSS ranks among the director's finest works to date.
