On the occasion of the European and World Day against the Death Penalty, the Delegation of the European Union to the United States organized the film screening of "In the Executioner's Shadow" in partnership with American University's School of Communication.

The screening, which was opened by EU Ambassador Stavros Lambrinidis, was then followed by a panel with the film producers, the mother of a victim, a former Chief executioner of Virginia, and the director of the National Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty.

In the margin's of this event, the Delegation recorded an EU Now Podcast with Vicki and Sylvester Schieber, parents of murder victim Shannon Schieber, who appear in the documentary film. You can listen to this conversation here, or using your podcast app.
